Brown like Dosas, Samosas and Sticky Chikki
"Brown like dosas, samosas sticky chikki" is an Indian story book. 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. Says Nandita Das, Actor Activitist about this book: "The bias for fair skin has existed in our society from time immemorial. I want to be defined by what I do, how I think, my passions and talents and not by the color of my skin. While altering mindsets is not easy, every step in the right direction contributes to that change. This enjoyable book addresses this issue without being preachy. All it says is you are lovely the way you are! Delighted that this book is celebrating that. A must buy for parents who want their children to grow up with self-confidence and respect for all."
