Padma Goes To Space/Padma Gyalo Mohakaashey (Bengali)

Author : Swetha Prakash
Illustrator : Shreya Sen

The Ningthou and Leima, king and queen of Manipur, rule well over their meeyam, their people. As the years roll by, it is time to decide who will succeed to the throne. The Ningthou and Leima desire that the throne go, not to the eldest son, but to the wisest, most able child. And so they hold a competition. Who wins the bout? This folktale from Manipur leads us to think about two very important issues – harmony with nature and gender equality. Well-known painter A. V. Ilango’s stunning visuals in red, black and white capture the power of this gentle tale. 2000: Excellence in Publishing, Federation of Indian Publishers (for the Tamil translation)
