Oh, what a pleasure it is to go back to Srinagar, the loveliest destination for Bookaroo Children’s Literature Festival by a long way. We love the city, the authors, storytellers and illustrators love it and so do the children of Srinagar. Taking Bookaroo for a visit to the valley, for us, is much like the annual vacations back when in school. It has all the comfort of home.
Kashmir has always had a special place in our hearts having been to Srinagar with five Bookaroos in the last eight years. We look forward to a successful and enjoyable sixth edition for everyone concerned.
A special word of thanks to Mrs Kiran Dhar and Mr Vijay Dhar for inviting us back each time. It is their hospitality and welcoming warmth that make Bookaroo Srinagar so much looked forward to by all of us. The entire team at Delhi Public School Srinagar makes the experience an unforgettable family get-together. And October is a wonderful time to be in “paradise on Earth”.
