The Dragon’s Pearl: A Story from China


Asia Society India Centre and Kitab Khana’s new childrens’ series, Adventures of Asia, present folk tales from around the Asian region meant to capture the imagination, instill a love of reading, and inspire a thirst for knowledge.

In our second installment, Sangeeta Choksi, Vice-Principal, Sunflower Nursery School, will read The Dragon’s Pearl, a story from China, where dragons are revered as gods. Unequalled in power and wisdom, the dragons are believed to rule the land, the clouds, the wind and the rain. In ancient China, the most sought-after treasure of the dragon is its pearl. Come and hear a story about a little boy, his mother and how the river Wang-Niang-Tan got its name! An interactive activity will follow the event.
