Last year, we held a Children's Day contest across our social media platforms and gave away books. This year, we celebrated Children's Day with two of our authors (Subhadra Sen Gupta and Madhuri Purandare) who were in Bengaluru to receive the Bal Sahitya Puraskar. As a belated Children's Day treat for all our friends, readers, fans and followers, we are hosting the 11 Days - 11 Books contest (coincidentally in the 11th month of the year :)).
You have 11 chances to win autographed copies of 'Freedom Run' (by Subhadra Sen Gupta) or 'Daddy's Mo (by Madhuri Purandare).
The contests will be hosted on the Pratham Books blog / Facebook page / Twitter account. So, make sure you are following us on each platform to keep track of the contests.

In the Mirzapur and Bhadohi districts of Uttar Pradesh, in Many tiny villages, small children work long hours at the looms to create carpets famous around the world for their intricate designs. This is a story about the forgotten children of India.
This contest has been closed now and the winner of the contest is Srividhya Venkat for her answer:
"Freedom is being able to follow your heart. Following your heart makes you happy. Therefore, freedom brings you happiness.
HOWEVER, freedom must have defining boundaries. I have freedom to play music loudly inside my house, but it must not be so loud as to disturb my neighbours. I must respect the freedom others enjoy and not encroach upon their boundaries. Without respect, nobody can enjoy freedom."
