New Delhi (India), March 21: Vani Tripathi Tikoo got together her friends in Mumbai to celebrate the unveiling of her book ‘Why Elephants Can’t be Red?’
Talking about the book, Tikoo said, “we generally tend to escape from reality when we write for children. With this book, I have tried to write a realistic story since my two and a half year old daughter Akshara is my inspiration and the protagonist of the book. The book sees the world through a child’s perspective.”
At the unveiling, filmmaker Anubhav Sinha said, “I am writing a script on children and was happy to hear about Vani’s book. It’s important to listen to kids, answer their questions and let them shape up the future for themselves.”
The celebration also saw a lot of kids who were seemingly excited to read the book.
Divya Dutta who has been part of films like Stanley Ka Dabba and Gippi both of which were centered around a child protagonist added that people should watch children films so that makers are encouraged to make films around a child’s world.
“I am happy that Vani has written a book around a child’s imagination. We all somewhere loose the child within us, while growing up.” Dutta said.
