SunstarTV Bureau: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister, Manish Sisodia has launched an online reading portal ‘Tadaa’ for connecting students across the country via stories to develop their reading habit, on Tuesday.
This portal has been started by a Delhi based NGO Katha, that works in the field of education.
Through this portal, Sisodia is trying to insurge the habit of reading stories in children from an early age and stated, “Stories help children develop a mindset from an early age, and enhances their reading ability. This is why we have used stories to improve the level of reading in children in Delhi’s government schools, through schemes like ‘Chunauti’, and ‘Mission Buniyaad’. The Katha Institute has contributed immensely in these efforts.”
This pandemic has allowed children to connect with stories as they have got opportunities to hear stories from family members, which are often passed down from generation to generation within the family.
He said, “It’s given an opportunity for children to engage even more with their families or find beautiful stories within their families. I know of children who’ve been hearing stories from their parents’ generation, and even stories from their grandparents’ generation. Despite the pandemic, this has been a blessing in disguise.”
