"Gagado's Ancient Tales, 2010

A children’s book by Manali Jagtap Nyheim (concept, research, execution), Htein Lin (illustrations), David Nyheim, Victoria Kirk and Janhavi Acharekar (writing).

Medium: Print

Pages: 31 pages

 

SYNOPSIS:

 

The last decade has seen the erosion of human rights in many parts of the world – and it is more important than ever to ensure that children are educated on and become effective future custodians of these rights.  

 

Gagado's Ancient Tales uses the universality of folktales (particularly how these address notions of fairness, truth, and justice) to teach children about human rights and the individual responsibilities that follow.  It is about a magical bottle called Gagado, who over centuries has collected tales from all over the world and appears to children in need of a specific story.  Each story is related to a specific daily issue faced by children with human rights connotations.  

 

Gagado himself represents “the story teller” – a role traditionally played by parents and grandparents – but which is missing in the lives of many children today.
