After it was announced that ICSE syllabus would include ‘Harry Potter’, ‘Tintin’, and ‘Asterix’, a nerd euphoria swept readers across the country. Expressing her appreciation of the move, Shilpa Shetty decided to tweet about it.
"Books like Lord Of The Rings (LOTR) and Harry Potter as part of the syllabus is a great move because it cultivates imagination and creativity at a young age. They should include books like Little Women, as it encourages respect towards women at a young age. Even a book like Animal Farm can teach the little ones to love and care for animals."
Just in case you are the uninitiated in the world of literature, ‘Animal Farm’ by George Orwell is a dystopian novella, a political satire on the Russian revolution, particularly, Stalinism. Uh oh.
Meanwhile, in real dystopia, Shilpa Shetty thinks Orwell writes books for children... pic.twitter.com/PD1Xc4cx9x— Kabir Taneja (@KabirTaneja) November 28, 2016
Please don’t give ‘Fifty Shades’ as a Christmas gift to your child.
