Big Rain/Bhaari Male (Kannada)

Author : Gayathri Bashi
Illustrator : T R Rajesh

Sometimes, ‘lots and lots and lots of rain’ is frightening — when water comes into homes and washes everything away. Big Rain was written when the author tried to explain to her three-year-old how the devastating floods in Kerala had affected family and friends and so many, many others. It talks to children through very simple text and evocative visuals, ending with the important reminder that if you look after nature, nature will look after you. It enables conversations that can heal and empower.

Rain can be fun. But sometimes, ‘lots and lots and lots of rain’ is frightening — when water comes into homes and washes everything away.

Floods and other natural calamities do happen, children do get caught in them, and other children see it all on television. How do they make sense of it? Big Rain was written when the author tried to explain to her three-year-old how the devastating floods in Kerala had affected family and friends and so many, many others. The book talks to children through very simple text and evocative visuals, ending with the important reminder that if you look after nature, nature will look after you. It enables conversations that can heal and empower.

A Story of Hope

“With Rajesh’s evocative sketches, the book takes its young readers (it is targeted at children aged four and above) through the dark days, when people and livelihoods were wiped away. But Gayathri also tells a story of hope, urging her readers to take care of their forests and rivers.” – Akila Kannadasan, The Hindu, February 2019
