Bhaiya Ki Muskan Kisne Udai on Storyweaver
Bhaiya doesn’t feel like playing these days. Could it be because of his new monster friend Dukduk, who is always hanging around him? No one in the family takes Bhaiya seriously. But Chiru knows there’s more than what meets the eye. A story about the lingering effects of depression.

भैया की मुस्कान किसने उड़ाई?
इन दिनों चिरु के भैया का खेल में भी मन नहीं लगता। कहीं इसकी वजह उनका भीमकाय दोस्त भावासुर तो नहीं जो हमेशा उनके आस-पास मँडराता रहता है? परिवार में कोई भी भैया को गंभीरता से नहीं लेता। लेकिन चिरु समझती है कि जो दिखाई देता है हमेशा उतना ही सच नहीं होता। ये कहानी है अवसाद से घिरे रहने और उसके असर की।

Book Recommendation - Pustak Na vachnari Mulgi (Girl who doesnot read books) - Marathi Book for kids

Listen 🔊:

Watch 🎥 :


Book Title: Pustak Na Vachnari Mulgi (A girl who doesnot read books)
Published by: Jyotsna Prakashan, Pune
Language: Marathi

Link to purchase this book online : https://jyotsnaprakashan.com/books/marathi/%E0%A4%AC%E0%A4%BE%E0%A4%B2%E0%A4%B8%E0%A4%BE%E0%A4%B9%E0%A4%BF%E0%A4%A4%E0%A5%8D%E0%A4%AF/pustak-na-vachnari-mulgi-jp168

Video for this Book Recommendation:
https://youtu.be/zvmh2sx76TU

This book is a beautiful example of two parallel stories in the same book - one by author and another by illustrator. Totally opposite daily routine of a girl and her parents. Parents are just in love with the books, so much that books are everywhere in the house. And for the girl, books are just obstacles, unnecessary.
What happens next when the heap of books fall on the ground in that girl's room?
