Big Rain/Perum Mazhai (Tamil)

Author : Gayathri Bashi
Illustrator : T R Rajesh

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? The book talks to children through rhythmic, repetitive 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. 2021: Selected for United Nations Sustainable Development Goal's Reading List 2019: Best of Indian Children's Writing: Contemporary Award

Allows the readers freedom to think and imagine.

The book is perfectly crafted for young learners who learn about natural calamities like floods and earthquakes from media sources around them but couldn’t make sense of them. As the book carries less text it allows the readers freedom to think and imagine, but gives it a direction.The Book Review Journal

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
