Why should children read Indian Mythology?
Ask your child who’s his favourite superhero? And they will say superman, batman. None of them will say epic heroes like Hanuman or Krishna. This is so because right from childhood little one’s are exposed to superheroes. They look upto these superheroes as their role models. As parents, along with these superheroes children should get exposure to the epic heroes of our Indian Mythology.
Indian mythology is full of stories of good winning over evil, dark over light, intelligence over ignorance. These stories provide an excellent moral ground to kids and make them understand what is right or wrong. Not only this but little ones get to learn a lot many things from Indian Mythology.
It teaches about our culture: Mythology is an important part of any culture. Knowing about our culture, traditions and customs is an important part that should be imparted at any early age. Example: From Ramayana, children get to know about Lord Rama's story and why it is relevant to our culture.
While schools provide the necessary formal education, parents can help their little ones in developing their personality and values by reading them our mythology. It is really important for kids to stay grounded and know their roots as they already know much about the multiple cultures and external influences. Therefore, it is more important now than ever, that our children know, understand and relate to our mythology. Pegasus is India's leading award-winning children's book publisher.
