BT002 Amma Tell Me About Holi!, by Bhakti Mathur, paperback
Come let’s hear the magical story,
Of Holi in all its vibrant glory
As told to Klaka, an eager little boy,
By his Amma, with dollops of joy.
First, a tale of colors and childhood fun:
Naughty Krishna and Radha, his loved one.
Next, an evil king who thought he was God,
His son Prahlad refused to accept the fraud.
He threatened his own son, who did not think him divine.
But against the evil king, faith and miracles did align.
A story of faith, devotion and love.
Passed down to children, from generations above…
