How can we bring to life folklore of yesterday and excite a new generation of readers, despite their short attention span and multiple distractions all around them? Noted writers of Asian tales for the young weigh in on interesting issues during this panel discussion on the relevance of folktales. Writer and editor Pooja Makhijani moderates this session.
Kamini was on the panel together with writers Chua Guat Eng (Malaysia) and Ho Min Fong (Singapore).
