ONCE UPON AN INDIA
6 August 2016 @ 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Does Indian history make you moan and groan? Are dates and events perennially a blur? Then ditch those textbooks and say hello to Subhadra Sen Gupta instead! In a delightful freewheeling session, she’ll take you through exciting stories of battles and warriors, kings and queens, Indians known and unknown that will leave you asking for more. Get on the past track and explore India like never before!
ABOUT SUBHADRA SEN GUPTA
Subhadra Sen Gupta has written over thirty books for children including mysteries, historical adventures, ghost stories, comic books and books on history. To her surprise, the Sahitya Akademi thinks she is doing a good job and gave her the Bal Sahitya Puraskar 2014 for her contribution to children’s literature in English. Right now she is waiting for a time machine so that she can travel to the past and join Emperor Akbar for lunch! She loves to travel, flirt with cats and chat with auto-rickshaw drivers.
FUNKY RAINBOW ~ THE TRAVELLING CHILDREN’S BOOKSHOP

Give your children the opportunity to meet and interact with an award-winning author and get autographed copies of her books!
