Title: Brown Like Dosas Samosas and Sticky Chikki
By: Rebecca Manari and Heetal Dattani Joshi
Ages: 5+

This is an Indian story challenging and debunking the discriminatory idea of "fair is beautiful". This book for kids is valuable for building positive self-esteem as it tells them that thoughts and actions define you and not your skin colour.

Samaira is a little chocolate-coloured girl who loves colours. But what happens when she meets a strange purple lady who offers to change her into a shade of white? Will little Samaira give in to the annoying Anahi's narrow idea of beauty, or is she happy just the way she is? Read what happens on Samaira's journey of self- discovery up on the fluffy clouds. This enchanting story will teach children to love themselves and their bodies as they are and to see their unique features as strengths.

Be the Change

Think of a time in your life when you overcame a challenge. Reflect on what was the source of your courage and share the story with someone near you. Or do any small act that would spread the vibrations of hope and optimism.
