Every 26th January, people gather on New Delhi's Rajpath amidst a colourful jamboree of fluttering flags, marching soldiers and dancing children. What is celebrated on this day is at the heart of our democracy-the magnificent Constitution of India.
The document didn't only lay down the law but united India with a vision that took two years, eleven months and seventeen days to realise. Subhadra Sen Gupta captures the many momentous occasions in Indian history that led to its making in The Constitution of India for Children. Populated with facts and dotted with cheerful illustrations, this book provides answers to innumerable questions asked over the years.
Subhadra Sen Gupta
Subhadra Sen Gupta has written over twenty-five books for children including mysteries, historical adventures, ghost stories and comic books. Right now she is waiting for someone to build a time machine so that she can travel to the past and join Emperor Akbar for lunch.
She loves to travel, flirt with cats, chat with auto-rickshaw drivers and sit and watch people.
Tapas Guha is a well known illustrator for children. What he likes best is illustrating comics and animal stories. His work has appeared extensively in books published by Pratham Books, Puffin, Scholastic, Rupa and Oxford University Press.
