Note to Children 

Hello Children,

Child & Grand-paDo you know what a joint family is? It is, when parents, grand-parents, uncles and aunts live together in the same house. Sometimes, fathers and mothers, with their children, live in different parts of the world.

I mean to say, that the grandparents, uncles and aunts, do not live with them. My grandchildren, are also not staying, in the same town as I am. And though I visit them, and they me, as often as possible, I miss them. 

My grandson Aditya had asked me to write for him, a simple story of Krishna, so that he could share it with his friends. So I thought why not share it with all other children? And then another thought occurred to me. The world is going through troubled times.

People are confused about different religions, and what message, they are trying to impart. Is it a different message? No! The common message in all religions, is that of Love, compassion, brotherhood, peace! The message of Krishna Christ Allah Buddha is the same. Thus was born: Dadi-Nani ki Kahaani (Granny's stories)

I hope that you enjoy them as much as my grand-children do. I dedicate these stories to my grand-children, Aditya, Kiran,Aysha,Shazia, Jai and to all my reader grand-children around the world.

With love,

Dadi-Ma Nani-Ma


A Note to the Dadis Nanis and parents

Child reading bookWe constantly worry about our child’s employability, but we do not worry about our child’s ability to express tenderness and empathy and contribute towards the world’s Peace and well-being!

But to be able to pass on the above qualities to our children we need to imbibe them first.

Let us teach our children to celebrate and meditate, so that they may be able to create a world by developing their sense of peace.

It is alarming to note that that ‘several young students have opted to end their lives rather than deal with the stress disorders they have had to face day after day’.

The future world must absorb a new spirituality.

Subjects like Interfaith, Peace and Ethics must be included in the Education System.

I agree with Ameeta Mulla (Principal, Springdales School, Pusa Rd, New Delhi, March 2005) when she writes:

…Children (must be taught) to make life an ‘offering’ by learning to:

Sing, dance, weep and sweat life;

Sleep, eat, paint, sculpt, hammer and read life;

Wash, iron, sew and pickle life;

Compute, touch, bend and fold life;

Learn and play, work and rest, fast and feast life

Argue and talk, whisper and shout, swim, cook and digest life;

Relax and Recover life, breathe and become life but never ever delete or mutilate life, for life is an offering; life is a prayer.


We cheat death not by living forever, but by bearing and educating children to keep our souls, our values and even our names alive.
