This is a slim children’s book based on a Kabir song and Buddhist parable, which tells the story of a brave parrot who puts out a forest fire. It is the result of a rich 6-month exchange between artist and educator Vishakha Chanchani and the children of a government school in Bangalore, where they produced an original script, picture scroll and dance-drama inspired by this story. The script and children’s illustrations have been adapted to make this book, which is bilingual (Hindi + English).
