Project Lemon-Choos

Project Lemon-Choos is dedicated to creating and making available quality child’s literature in Maithili – a language of North Bihar, foremost on many a children’s tongue, yet struggling to hold its own against other socially and politically dominant languages. In addition to creating original works in Maithili, the project also involves translations of some of the choicest works in children’s literature from across the world, into Maithili. We hope Maithil children savour these books, much like the Lemon Choos we all savored as children. Know More
