In an attempt to change the narrative around children’s tales, the book ushers in a new way of storytelling featuring stories of 51 inspiring women from India. While most fairytales show how princess needs a prince to save her, this book tells stories of Indian women who are their own knights in shining armor.
‘The Dot That Went For A Walk’ is curated by Lakshmi Nambiar, Reema Gupta and Sarada Akkineni and also includes illustrations by 51 artists from across the country.
