Chandamama!

August 28, 2006

When we were kids, we grew up with Gokulam, Poonthalir, and Amar Chitra Katha; however, the neighbour used to buy Chandamama, which we read avidly. Also, if you are learning any of the Indian languages, Chandamama (in Tamil, it was called Ambuli maama) is the first book to buy — I did it with Kannada, Telugu and Sanskrit.

All these reminiscences are because Uma tells us that Chandamama turns sixty this year.
