Tree Talk with Mallika Ravikumar


I do a variety of things, and collect useful nuggets of wisdom along the way. I then use them for creating resources for parents, children, educators and authors. I hope you find them useful.

As a writer, Mallika knows how to be sensitive to the subject yet stay compelling to her readers. She’s honest but not rude; she’s persistent but not invasive; she’s simple but not plain.
Mallika brings out hidden gems from mythology for children. Petu Ganesha is one more beautiful addition to this collection.
I would want to thank Mallika for her exceptional summer-camp on Trees, conducted in the beautiful surroundings of the IIT Bombay campus.
Mallika's storytelling sessions are well enjoyed and children learn a number of new things and like her style of narration.
