There’s no denying the fact that coronavirus or COVID-19 is slowly pressing pause on our lives. There are fewer vehicles on the road, and even fewer people on public transport (which in a country like India is a miracle, or not), theatres have been closed, why even the IPL has been postponed. Yet the most celebrated forced lockdown must be that of schools, much to the delight of the young ones!
With a pandemic on the loose, the little ones are who we’re worried about. We want to send them out to play, for swimming classes, summer camps, but we can’t. Which means, ah yes, there they sit, glued to their screens, slowly turning into zombies. If we throw a ball at them, will they bite? Can we tempt them into doing chores with the promise of dessert before dinner? Will their eyes now permanently wear that vacant, glassy look?
Maybe not, maybe there’s still some hope. After all, even though they may not be crazy about it in a time of digital growth, books are still in vogue. From eternal luminaries like Enid Blyton to Roald Dahl, there’s no shortage of wonderful books in children’s literature.
We have to admit, there’s a certain charm to Roald Dahl’s stories that tempts even grownups or perhaps just a few of the eccentric ones. It’s why Mango Books decided to follow Willy Wonka’s footsteps and send out 3 not-so-magical but still-pretty-cool GOLDEN TICKETS! We’ll do you one better than Mr. Wonka though, 3 Golden Tickets out every day! The lucky receiver of a golden ticket gets 30% off on any Mango Book. They can pick from folktales to Timeless Classics to fun fiction and more!
