HYDERABAD: Childhood is generally a subject of nostalgia in literature. “But in reality, experiences of childhood differ from person to person depending on their social and economic background,” observed Shanta Sinha, chairperson of National Commission for Child Rights (NCCR), on Tuesday.

Many children drop out from school as they cannot afford to buy notebooks and their childhood would never be a happy memoir, she explained. She was addressing the gathering at a book release function organised by Anveshi Research Centre for Women’s Studies.

She released eight story books for children which were written on the childhood experiences of children from disadvantaged sections under ‘Different Tales’, a project of Anveshi. Ms. Sinha appreciated the organisation.
