The reading of Kyo and Obi: A fable about friendship and discovering the joy of self-acceptance An unusual friendship develops between a dog and a dot (a speck of dust)–man’s best friend and an ignored particle of matter. Despite being together all the time, they cannot be similar. Their dissimilarities are rather evident. Can their friendship sustain even with the dissimilarities? Maybe, if there is patience, understanding and acceptance. Can acceptance be learnt? The dot tells us that it can. Let’s peep within, with the dot and look at where acceptance begins. The story has been printed on 100% recycled cotton paper and is hand-stitched by people with disabilities. Let’s feel the paper, speak about the ink, and hear about the binding from the author and publisher, and let’s also read the story together. Date: 25th January 2020 Time: 4:00-5:30 pm Age: 10 – 15 years Open to All Call 9823222665 to register
