2020 has seen the dreaded Novel Coronavirus sneak into India. As an unprecedented nationwide lockdown is announced, Ajja and Ajji welcome their grandchildren and Kamlu Ajji into their house in Shiggaon.
What starts off as a tiresome routine of switching masks, assisting in the household chores and making food for workers soon turns into an unforgettable time for the kids. In the unlikeliest of times, the children are ushered into the captivating world of goddesses, kings, serpents, bewitching beanstalks, kingdoms, and a lot more. Their grandparents’ stories cheer them up, teaching them the value of compassion, wisdom and resilience at the same time.
Written in line with the bestselling Grandma’s Bag of Stories, Sudha Murty is back with a collection of immortal tales that she penned down during the lockdown. Grandparents’ Bag of Stories is bound to comfort our young ones, who have been deprived of precious study and playing time due to the pandemic. The book seeks to teach the importance of sharing and caring, in addition to driving home the value of being worldly-wise.
