Paro Anand

Once upon a time, in a world filled with stories, there was a storyteller named Paro Anand. Like a wizard with words, she created magical tales for children, young adults, and even grown-ups. Her stories were not just words on a page; they were adventures waiting to be discovered. Imagine a garden where every flower tells a story – that’s what reading her books feels like!

Listen to the autobiography

Paro Anand did something very special. She didn’t just write stories; she also shared them with children everywhere, in schools and in places called NGOs. She believed that every child, no matter where they are, should have the chance to dream through stories. It’s like she turned the world into a giant storybook, open for all to read.

There’s something else amazing about Paro Anand. She helped over three thousand children make the world’s longest newspaper! Imagine a paper so long, it could wrap around your school! It’s like a paper dragon, stretching out with stories and dreams. That’s what Paro Anand helped to create, a dragon of dreams made of paper and ink.
