Katha has released an e-book titled “The Mystery Of The Missing Soap” to encourage children to understand, in their language, the essentials of hygiene and health, necessary to overcome the current challenges. The e-book is, currently, available in English, Hindi and Tamil. The Marathi, and Assamese versions will be available in due course.
The storyline revolves around the evil Asura, Tobakachi, who wishes to conquer India by spreading the attack of the deadly Coronavirus; the e-book serves as an exciting one-stop guide for children to know how to protect themselves from the pandemic, as it is filled with interesting facts and do’s and dont’s that children should follow.
The e-book will be soon available at a nominal price on Amazon Kindle. However, the books can also be read for free on https://books.katha.org/e-books/
Geeta Dharmarajan, Founder, Katha said: “The idea is to reach out to everyone, including children from low-income communities, and hence, anybody can read the book for free. All they need is an internet connection or a smartphone/laptop/any other device that supports an internet connection. Our objective is to protect our children from this pandemic, as much as is possible, and awareness is crucial for the same.”
