Kohima! Here we come…
Nagaland is a land where folklore has passed down the generations through word of mouth. Where music is an integral part of life; where folk songs eulogise ancestors and the brave deeds of warriors and traditional heroes; where poetic love songs immortalise ancient tragic love stories; where Gospel songs touch the soul; where contemporary tunes make you want to tap your blues away. What could be a more fitting pitstop in Bookaroo’s journey of celebrating books and stories?
Thanks to the rock-like support from our partner, The Kohima Institute, Bookaroo Children’s Literature Festival, with its stories, art and craft, workshops, drama and books, has been able to venture into the north-east at last. Our authors, storytellers, illustrators and performers will land in Kohima very soon to add to the colour of a city, where life itself is one long festival.
As Bookaroo wings its way to its ninth state and 12th city, we hope that the children of Kohima are as excited as we are.
Come on over. We promise you something that you will not forget in a hurry.
