Rewind. Recap.

The week that was...


We launched our new book 'Cauvery' and a campaign for water conservation. You can click here to pledge your support and click here to share your water tips and Cauvery stories. Oh, and did we mention once you do pledge support, you/your organization/school/library could be part of the book launch event in Bangalore and win a FREE Pratham Books’ gift hamper. There are individual prizes for children and prizes for schools and corporates that send in the highest number of pledges. You can also participate in these contests and stand a chance to win a bucket full of books!

Taran Rampersad wrote an article talks about ebooks in education as well as a model of publishing for education that uses Creative Commons licensing (He also mentions some of our books in the article).

A tweet sent by one of our friend's on Twitter helped us discover Radio Mirchi's initiative to reach out to the visually challenged. Also, find out about the nationwide 'Right to Read' campaign. The campaign begins with road shows in four metros and will then be taken up in different cities. The first roadshow is to be held at Loyala College on 26th September.

If you are in Bangalore, you can take your kids to watch the play, Andher Nagari Chowpat Raja, on September 24.
