Pratham Books Champion : Seema Wahi Mukherjee

This International Literacy Day, Pratham Books has taken a 1000 steps towards a 'Reading India'

What started as a small step by Pratham Books to spread the joy of reading has become a movement. Last year Pratham Books initiated the One Day-One Story initiative on the occasion of International Literacy Day and we conducted over 250 storytelling sessions. This year we are delighted that over a 1000 sessions are happening across the length and breadth of the country.We will be sharing the stories of all our champions through our blog.

Seema Wahi Mukherjee conducted a storytelling session along with the Pratham Books (Delhi) team on 7th September, 2013. We would like to thank the Oxford Bookstore for being our venue partner and supporting us in this initiative. 35 kids from Bal Sahyog NGO were present at the event. Bal Sahyog provides free shelter and education to these children. The session was conducted in Hindi and was followed by an activity of writing and enacting their own magic mantras.

Thank you Seema and Oxford Bookstore for spreading the joy of reading!
