Highlights of June 2014 Issue

June 2014
  • This is the first anniversary issue of Little Hands.  The popular American Writer Pearl S. Buck and her words appear on the face page of the magazine.  Children ought to trace out  the love and affection innate in the stories of this gifted writer.  The beautiful translation of the famous lullaby by Irayimman Thampi ‘Omana Thinkal Kidaco’ (rendered by Sri Kilimanoor Balan) adds to the worth of this issue.  Besides this, a very nice poem by Prof. G.N. Panikkar ‘The jingle that tinkles not’ and an anecdot by Prof. PadmaSri  Vishnu Narayanan Namboodiri, (two of our patrons) leave  this issue a really resourceful one.
  • A write up on the hopes our new Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi  has evoked in all Indians is included.  A write up on Karl Marx also finds room in this issue.
  • Dr. Deepa Prasad keeps writing on word-study. Children do pay attention to it.  The ‘meant’ words are really funny, but, contributing to one’s vocabulary.
  • ‘The great Indian rope trick’ (a glance at history) tries to reveal the mystery behind this  popular magic trick performed by street magicians of past India.
  • Under the column ‘great personalities’, this issue discusses the story of Salim Ali.  A highly motivating one.
  • The story of the spinning girl, poems, columns like Maths Corner, test your English, doubt clearing session, grammar lessons, motivational write-ups, questions and answers, phonetics etc. give this issue the appearance of a worthy magazine.

We remain grateful to all who have contributed to the issues published so far and the patrons, promoters, subscribers and readers of the magazine.
