The story of those real heroes or role models will also be made available in ‘metaverse’, they informed, adding such books will be published twice or thrice every year.

Speaking as a special guest, retired civil servant RK Nimai said that such inspiring stories of the state icons will help in motivating the young children in their future endeavours.

Many young children are in need of inspiration after getting out of the long isolation due to COVID-19 pandemic, he said.  Publishing such books will help in inspiring the kids and giving long term benefits, he added.

At the function, civil servant Pooja Elangbam spoke on ‘How books become a window to the new world? Why are books important for children and all?’
