Colour struck Bookworms
April 28, 2017

I have assisted in a couple of workshops and camps in the past but a lead?? This was my first. I love to draw and paint. I have used my gift of art as a stress buster, as a way to express my happiness, as a way to suppress my anger. But never had I […]

February 5, 2017

Twelve-year-old Shahnawaz Nadaf is a restless boy. He runs around the small room in Indiranagar, Chimbel which doubles up as the Bookworm Children’s Library pinching and pushing other children.
