THATHA AT SCHOOL
It is Grandparents Day at school, and everyone is excited.
Not little Oviyam, who is embarrassed at the thought of her school mates seeing her grandfather Thatha in a dhoti, a traditional wrap-around lower. She tries her best to convince him to skip the event but he insists on attending.
Will Oviyam rise above her insecurities and own up her dhoti-wearing Thatha in front of everyone?
Richa Jha's light, breezy words, along with Gautam Benegal's soft playful colour palettes and vividly illustrated frames help the reader both empathise with Oviyam fears and strongly hope for her baseless insecurities to rid her troubled mind.
