Book Review

The Maharashtra Times carried a review of some of our books here.

तिखट-गोड फराळाचे डबे एव्हाना फस्त झाले असतील तर आता एका वेगळ्या फराळाकडे वळूया. हा फराळ आहे पुस्तकांचा. खास छोट्या दोस्तांसाठी हा फराळ आहे. मोठ्यां साठी दिवाळी अंकांची मेजवानी असते मग लहानग्यांसाठी काही नको का! फराळात जसं वैविध्य असतं तसंच पुस्तकांच्या या फराळातही आहे. काही चकलीसारखी कुरकुरीत तर काही शंकरपाळ्यांसारखी छोटी पण गोड. बाल आणि कुमार साहित्यात बरीच नवीन पुस्तकं

It talks about the goodies we prepare for Diwali... But the goodies made up of words and not sweets...

It says that this Diwali has brought faraal i.e. Diwali goodies not only in form of sweets, but books with different flavours. It starts with stories in famous books/ magazines/weeklys in Marathi such as Champak, Thak Thak, Akbar Birbal, Isop tales, etc. Then comes note on a book by Popluar Prakashan. Then comes our Manee Maaoo which specifically says about Pratham books and Rijuta Ghate. Then are few sentences about Rohini Nilekani speaking about our low-cost model.

Then again comes note on other books on animals and birds, about Rajat Prakshan, Marathi Diwali Magazines, Manovikas Prakashan, Urjaa Prakashan, etc.

Then comes one paragraph about our Cauvery; it says that a very different book with lots of research and exclusive pictures. It says the book has origin of Cauvery, island of birds, Battle of Shrirangpattan, Curse of Talakad, Power of the waterfall, Cauvery meets the sea, etc. Quotes from Cauvery about how long it is and it will take 100 days to travel.
