On Varli Art, Literature, and the IPad

On a visit to the Frankfurt Bookfair last year, I came across a delightful application - http://www.appgeneration.com/publi/kids

As soon as I saw this, I thought of connecting it to school children from our Nareshwadi School (run by the Girivanvasi Education Trust - http://www.nareshwadi.org/).  The schoolchildren are primarily from the Varli Community, and have their own art, language and culture.  In fact, they have written their stories, and wanted them published.  And I thought that this would be a delightful way of bringing in new technology, tribal art, culture, and preservation.

Have asked my nephew Siddharth to help make this happen, along with the Teachers and students from Nareshwadi.  This should be done and ready by next month.
