Written for young children, Delhi Thaatha is a biography of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, a much-loved teacher and world-renowned philosopher who served as the first vice president of the Republic of India, then, beginning in 1962, president of the country. Written by his great-granddaughter, who tells the story, with insight and charm, from the perspective of her seven-year-old self, and illustrated in full colour by graphic artist Sunandini Banerjee, Delhi Thaatha offers a rare glimpse into the life, personality, heart, mind, and philosophy of an illustrious statesman, as Chitra Viraraghavan tracks his journey from poor small-town boy to the moment when he takes the oath to serve the country’s highest office.
