My Gandhi Story/Nanna Gandhi Kathe (Kannada)

Author : Nina Sabnani, Ankit Chadha
Illustrator : Rajesh Chaitya Vangad

Everyone has their own story of Gandhi. And in this book – that came out of a set of four large paintings – a Warli artist, an animation filmmaker and a storyteller collaborate to create a very visual Gandhi story. While the artist was inspired to paint Gandhi's life simply because “he was like us”, the curating of the visuals was inspired by the details in the paintings. Like the three creators behind the book, there are three voices that tell the story – of the narrator, the questioning child, and Gandhiji himself – coming together to introduce children to the great man called Mahatma Gandhi. 2016: Children's Choice Award, Young India Books 2014: Excellence in Book Production, Darsana National Awards

Not just another Gandhi story

The text is simple, easily understandable, and the illustrations help in making the book different, from other Gandhi stories. And instead of just listing out his virtues, or the sacrifices he made for the country, the story is more a conversation, between us and Gandhi himself, as he explains his feelings, or decisions, while key-facts are given as well. The art-work brings everything to life... the illustrations grab your attention, with their simple lines and colors; the signature Warli pictures relating Gandhi’s life, and highlighting significant events such as the Salt Satyagraha.
