A Kite Called Korika - KitaabWorld

A Kite Called Korika

$ 9.50

This story is set in a village in Andhra Pradesh, India. The monsoon has failed in Yellaiah's village and everything is dry and dusty. One day, he is sitting under a gnarled old peepal tree and an old woman named Rajamma who sells overripe fruits when he looks up at the sky and sees something like a dot.

He keeps looking and finds it is a kite that's descending downward and it falls right beside him. Excitedly he picks it up. Rajamma looks at the patterns on the kite and tells him it is a wish-fulfilling kite. Soon, all his friends are making wishes - for bangles, a school bag, a full meal...this moving story about dreams and fears is matched by tender pictures that explore the innocence and vulnerability of children..
