Rendezvous with an Author

July 14, 2017

Class IV students of DPS, Sushant Lok had an enriching and an interactive session on 13th July,2017 with author Ms Bhakti Mathur, the creator of the ‘Amma Tell Me’ books-a series of picture books about Indian festivals and mythology. Ms Mathur spoke to the children about how her rendezvous with writing books  began. The motivation for writing ‘Amma tell Me’ series was to share with her sons the fascinating stories from Indian mythology that she as a child had grown up with.

Ms Mathur caught the attention of the students when she narrated the story from her latest publication- ‘Amma Take Me to The Golden Temple’- where she took her young audience on a worded tour through the wonderful sights, sounds and history of the Darbar Sahib.

During the interactive session, the students got to know more about her when they inquisitively asked about her favorite author and books, the mood she is in when she begins to write a book and what kind of a student she herself was in school? She very patiently answered their queries and gave away personalized autographed books to the students.

The session concluded with Ms Leena Singhal, Headmistress Junior School thanking her for sparing her valuable time and encouraging the young minds to be imaginative and creative.
