Respected Author Manorama Jafa among University Students
students at the Central Department of English, Tribhuvan University on March 7, 2018 Wednesday. At an event jointly organised by Children's Literature Foundation Nepal (CLFN) and Creative Literary Forum (CLF) Tribhuvan University, Smt. Jafa underscored the need to orient young scholars towards children's literature. Recalling her experience with children for several decades, she highlighted the benefit of children's literature, which is threefold: instructive, entertaining and therapeutic. She also argued that the present is the time for realistic and new story, and ancient tales can do little good to modern children.
