Chachajis Cup

Uma Krishnaswami (A) and Soumya Sitaraman (ILT)

List Price: $9.95 (Paperback - India and Pakistan / Family / Storytelling - 2003)

Description:Chachajis Cup is a gentle tale of family love and the power of memory, brought to life with richly hued paintings. Neel loves listening to Chachajis stories over steaming cups of tea. Chachajis tales of great Hindu gods and demons, and of his adventures in the Indian Army, leave Neel openmouthed. But it is the tale of his great-uncles favorite teacup that teaches Neel the most, for Chachajis cup holds far more than sweet, spicy masala chai. It holds the story of a family and a country split in two during the 1947 partition of India and Pakistan. When the precious cup and Chachajis health both prove to be more fragile than they look, Neel knows what he must do. (32 pgs) Ages 4-8

Ashay says, "Chachajis cup is smbolic of the past. A generational story, and a history lesson on the Partition that was created in 1947 to separate the people of India (Hindus) from Pakistan (Muslims). During this time over 12 million people were uprooted. Great book, must have for the library and classroom."
