Join the Festive Mood: A Message from Author Sonia Mehta for Your Young Ones!

Diwali is round the corner and we are sure your young ones are jumping with excitement! The festival season is full of cheer, lights and colour, and India has so many of them!

Celebrated children’s author, Sonia Mehta, is back with Festivals of India to introduce your young ones to all the festival cheer that India has to offer. With its diverse range of communities and cultures, our country has many, many reasons to celebrate all year long. Here is a message to your kids from author Sonia Mehta herself!


Hello Kids!

Here’s an incredible thing about India. Because India is a mix of so many cultures, there are literally hundreds of festivals that people celebrate. I thought it would be a great idea to get to know some of them.

Many festivals have stories and legends behind them. Sometimes, people forget the reason they are celebrating a festival in the first place. I’ve tried to share with you as many of the stories and legends behind the festivals as I could. It’s not possible to write about all of them – that would end up being a giant book – but this book contains some of the better-known and lesser-known ones!

Lots of love,

Sonia Aunty
