About the Author
Bhakti Mathur, private banker by day, mother to Shiv and Veer (six and four years old) and an avid delver in Indian mythology at all other times is the creator of the ‘Amma Tell Me’ books – a series of picture books about Indian festivals and mythology for children in the three to eight year age group.
She wrote and self-published her first book, “Amma Tell Me About Holi!” in 2011 and over the next 3 years, the series has grown with books on the festival of Diwali, the Hindu epic Ramayana and stories about the Hindu gods, Krishna, Ganesha and Hanuman.
“The real motivation for writing the ‘Amma Tell Me’ series was to share with my sons the fascinating stories from Indian mythology that I had grown up with,” says Bhakti. “But, I found that there were no resources that were simple to understand and that captured the rich imagery of mythological India that is such an integral part of these stories for me. So I went ahead and started writing the stories in a style that I think kids find fun and non-preachy and collaborated on the illustrations to bring out the imagery that I want my stories to convey. ”Bhakti grew-up in Delhi. She currently works for a major Swiss Bank and lives in Hong Kong with her family.
Bhakti is a committed writer ambassador for Room to Read, a global non-profit which offers holistic literacy and girls’ education programs. An avid reader, a long-distance runner and a yoga enthusiast, when not working or running after her boys, she is happiest curled up with a book in her hand and a hot cup of chai.
