Malala’s memoir to be translated into four Indian languages

Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel Peace Prize recipient and an icon of education rights, will soon come closer home.

Her memoir I am Malala: the girl who stood up for education and was shot by the Taliban, is being translated into four Indian languages — Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam and Marathi.

While the Kannada version published by Akruthi Books will be released on Sunday, the book in the other three languages will hit the stands soon.

The memoir recounts her fight for education in the SWAT valley of Pakistan and the Taliban attack on her for championing the cause of education for the girl child.

It created a stir when Malala sealed a deal of $3 million for the rights of her memoir in 2013.

The book later turned into a bestseller, fuelled by Malala’s address at the United Nations, dubbed as ‘Malala Day’.
