Parveen Minocha released her very unique bi-lingual children’s book of poetry - Madhuban on Oct. 29 in Acton, MA. The book is an appropriate path for a child familiar with English to learn Hindi. The transliterated lines along with translation provides the perfect mechanism. The book is available on Amazon. Dr. Subra Dravida was the chief guest for the evening and the book was released by Parveen’s dear sister who runs a school in India.
A poetess par excellence, this is the third in the row of children’s books that she has published. The first one was Chumbak. The second one My First OM she co-produced with Ranjani Saigal and Meena Mehta.
Dr. Subra Dravida was very appreciative of her works. He felt the poems in Chumbak were actually reflective of Vedanta. Parveen’s sister, who released the book shared the details of the life of the young Parveen. She talked about how even as a young child Parveen the poet was visible. She also talked about her amazing recitation skills and how as a petite little Parveen she shook the entire audience with her powerful rendition of Subadra Kumari Chauhan’s poem - Jhansi Ki Rani.
Parveen said the idea of the Bi-Lingual book would be expanded to include other languages and that Tamil and Telugu were already in the works. We look forward to the release of those books.
Here is the video of the book release.
