Preface

"Why Nani?" is a book for children and youth. It answers questions that are frequently asked about Indian tradition. The significance of our traditional values is expressed in simple language with appropriate illustrations in this book, which reaches out to children, parents, and teachers.

Through the blessing of His Holiness Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamigal, "Why Nani?" was initially published in the "Children's Corner" of Tattvaloka magazine.

Thousands of readers have benefited by the valuable thoughts of our ancestors. With a view to widen the reach of this wisdom, the thoughts were compiled in a book form by Smt. Lalita Ramakrishna, the brain behind this dialogue forum, and it was sold out soon. This is the second edition with suitable updating.

Children with busy parents find that grandma has plenty of time for them. She listens to their problems and clears their doubts with interesting stories. Listen to Nani's words on modern art, grumpy teachers, genius training, inner beauty, gods and wars.

India is not a mere geographical entity. It lives when Indians keep their ancient values vibrant wherever they are located. Particularly the Indian diaspora is eager for inputs about our tradition and values.

This book will certainly fulfil that need.
