Chennai, February, 2018 : Tulika Singh has published five beautifully illustrated books for children with Notion Press, India’s fastest growing self-publishing company. The books – ‘The boy who remained 16’, ‘Shabri Ke Ram’, ‘7 colours of Holi’, ‘Parijat’ and ‘The Princess Who Slept for Fourteen Years’ inculcate strong moral values among children by narrating joyful stories. All stories are part of SFS series- Stories from scriptures, an attempt to churn our ancient heritage and bring out stories which are evergreen and have stood the test of time.
The author is a mother of two boys and while searching the ‘right books’ for them, she realized there are hardly any appropriate books available for the children. Hence, she decided to pen down these stories that entertain as well as enlighten the young minds.
‘The boy who remained 16’ narrates a story about a 16 years old boy who tries to find out the most important truth of his life during his final days. The intense story highlights two important aspects of human life which are faith and perseverance.
The story of ‘Shabri Ke Ram’ is about a small tribal girl who runs away from home to find answers to her inner conflicts. Her life changes when she meets a teacher who shows her the right path and who guides her to achieve her goal. The story demonstrates virtues of patience and inner strength. It conveys an essential message, that one’s caste, education, wealth or looks do not matter, and through devotion and simplicity, one can realise life’s essential meaning.
The book ‘7 colours of Holi’ is a celebration of myriad emotions. The plot of the story revolves around the most colourful festival of India – Holi. The book has seven poetries giving us reasons as to why we celebrate Holi. There are legends of Putna, Dhundhi, Shiva, Kaam, Radha, Krishna Yamuna and Balram. The book takes us on a journey to different parts of India and also teaches us a quick lesson how to make our own organic colour.
The book ‘Parijat’ brings us to a mythical, magical tree called Parijat which grew out from a princess ash, whose bark was golden and bore clusters of fragrant flowers. The tree does not belong to the earth and was revealed by angels. The books stress on the “Power of mind”.
‘The Princess Who Slept for Fourteen Years’ is the story of Mithila’s princess, one of the most unsung characters of the Ramayana. She chose to endure rather than expressing herself and opted for dignified silence over name and fame.
