‘Mom, please don’t tell me what to read’

Anu Bhambhani laments on the passing of days of old when " ... kids read what their elders made them read. Kids no more want to be told about ’their kind of books’. They know what they want and accordingly take their pick."
Says Swati Roy of Eureka, a children’s bookstore at Alaknanda, "Magic and fantasy novels have always had their takers. What has changed over the years is the fact that children have become more receptive to the idea of reading, they are showing an interest in reading. They don’t have to be forced by their parents to read, compared to say the scene six years back."
