It has been rightly said that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Knowing that parents love their children unconditionally, it would not be wrong to say that even young children adore their parents. ‘Darkless’ is a story that uses minimal words to express such a strong emotion which is LOVE.
While Ani’s mother is away, he feels that he is trapped amidst the vicissitudes of life. Never does he ever find anything pleasing or happy. Gloomy and dark days don’t help him either. But when he sees his mother after a long time, everything becomes ‘darkless’. Irrespective of the fact that his mother doesn’t have hair on her head, he finds her beautiful and offers to shave off his hair too! Alas! We fail to understand the meaning of such unconditional love as we grow older. But the children do.
‘Darkless’ is a story with a very important message. Using minimal words and beautiful illustrations by Sandhya Prabhat, this book will definitely be liked by all young ones. The target audience is the children between the age of 3-6.
Best wishes to the author!
