Little Toys [537KB]
Arvind Gupta; Illustrations by: Avinash Deshpande
It is an irony of modern consumerism that junk products are packed in tough cartons. While the frail human body consumes and digests the junk, it is the environment that has to grapple and reckon with the tough, non-biodegradable waste. And, in the process, humans become sick and the environment decays. Today we can see city parks littered and garbage dumps overflowing with tetra packs and plastic of various kinds. An attempt has been made in the book to show how some of this modern junk can be recycled into joyous toys.

Ten Little Fingers - Ideas and Activities in Science [1.82 MB]
Arvind Gupta; Illustrations by: Avinash Deshpande
This is a collation of innovative toys and science activities which the author has tried and tested in more than one thousand schools over the past twenty years. With detailed illustrations, each activity is clearly depicted. Children do not need fancy laboratories and expensive equipment for doing science activities. There is much, which can be done using throwaway things found at home. Only when children use ordinary things do they realise the relevance of science in everyday life.
