Gulan and Jayant Kripalani read from former Chief Justice Leila Seth's work written especially for children: 𝘞𝘦, 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘊𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘯 𝘰𝘧 𝘐𝘯𝘥𝘪𝘢 (Puffin, 2010).
'I've always felt that the Preamble to our Constitution is as close to a national poem as one can get. The profound values it is built on, the spirit of Ubuntu, the message of hope and commitment to a better world moves me deeply. It is the ultimate document one aspires to live up to. So when I read Leila Seth's extraordinary book, I knew this had to reach every child in the country.
This reading by Jayant and me will, I hope, lead to many more, in all languages, so that every child will always remember the words and be inspired to be the best version of themselves.'
Conceived by Gulan Kripalani, narrated by Gulan and Jayant Kripalani for History for Peace.
