Colours of Delhi for HT's 'You read they learn' campaign

I was one of the three illustrators who was part of the   the wonderful 'You read they learn' campaign organised by Pratham books and the Hindustan Times this month . On May 1st, thousand of  copies of  'Colours of Delhi'  got printed on the front page of HT (imagine !) and were  in circulation in the Delhi, Gurgaon and NCR region. The pages could be cut out  and folded into a book and the  story  could be read out to children who cannot read, are learning to read or given to children who cannot afford books. Check out some images here .This book is available for download here http://issuu.com/htonline/docs/yrtl . Jasjyot is one of the other illustrators who was part of the campaign. Do check out his work at http://ultichhatri.blogspot.in/ . You will be left amazed.
