For Karadi Tales enthusiasts , there is something new to look forward to. This series of popular audio books for children recently announced its foray into the digital book space with the launch of four titles — Krishna’s Conquests, Birth of Krishna, Young Hanuman and Hanuman the Mighty — from its “Mythology” series. A total of four apps, one for each of the tales, can be accessed on the iPad. Narrated by Jnanpith award-winning playwright Girish Karnad, these apps have gripping music by the band 3 Brothers & a Violin. Apart from the colourful illustrations, these apps also offer the option of recording one’s voice to go along with the story, and hearing it played back. Moreover, the apps have several engaging activities such as paint, jigsaw puzzles and quizzes.
