Rewind. Recap.

The week that was...

The Cauvery Contest is on and we have uploaded more tips and stories on the blog. Read the stories, be inspired, incorporate changes, share your tips and stories... and stand a chance to win books!

Last week's blogposts revolved around quite a few events taking place in Bangalore. One of the events Pratham Books participated in was Sneha Sante, a charity bazaar held to coincide with the 'Joy of Giving Week'. Read a post on the fair.

A quick event reminder for you - Bangalore's Goethe-Institut is holding a panel discussion on 'Issues in Contemporary German and Indian Literature' on 29th September at 6.30pm.

Three cheers to the power of Twitter! For those of you who aren't Twitter converts yet, read the following article on how Stephen Fry's Twitter posts about a novel resulted in a 6000% spike in sales. You can also read Belletrista, a bimonthly web magazine, which seeks both to encourage cross-cultural understanding through international literature written by women and to increase the visibility of that literature.

The Joy of Giving Week is finally here and we will be uploading videos from the 'Design for Giving Contest' as and when they are up on their site. Watch 'Stories of Change from Mumbai' to see how kids have gathered to come up with simple solutions to tackle problems.
