Vidya Balan's golden touch and Karadi Tales

By Rajesh Kumar Singh, Glamsham Editorial

The Karadi Tales audiobook 'Little Vinayak' narrated by renowned actress Vidya Balan has been chosen as one of the Outstanding Books of 2013 by the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY). This seems to be another of Vidya Balan's success stories. Whatever she touches turns gold. The audiobook has music, sound effects and songs by 3 Brothers and A Violin and title music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.


"I have always wanted to read to children. Little Vinayak from Karadi Tales is such a wonderful funny story and I am happy for the opportunity to have done it," this was what Vidya Balan had said when she undertook the assignment.


An original tale by Shobha Viswanath, Little Vinayak is about a little elephant whose trunk is so long that he trips and falls whenever he walks. No matter what he does, he cannot keep his long trunk out of the way - until one day, a very special friend offers an unusual solution. Vidya Balan recounts the story of Little Vinayak with humour and wit to engage every listener. The original printed version of the book has illustrations by Shilpa Ranade.


"Little Vinayak is a warm and funny story dealing with a physical disability without being didactic or preachy. I hope children love it. Vidya Balan has done such a fabulous job with the narration," says Shobha Vishwanath, Publishing Director, Karadi Tales.


Karadi Tales is a subsidiary of ACK Media, which provides meaningful entertainment alternatives for kids and families and brings fun into the development of early learning skills through picture books, audiobooks and DVDs.


Being chosen as one of the outstanding books of 2013 by IBBY, copies of Little Vinayak will go on the travelling exhibits across Europe throughout 2013 and it will also be displayed at the IBBY Documentation Centre.


IBBY is a non-profit organization, which represents an international network of people from all over the world who are committed to bringing books and children together.
