Parvati the Elephant’s Very Important Day

by Shobha Tharoor Srinivasan

Parvati the elephant has an important role to play in the temple, and she’s very excited about doing it. But sometimes, unexpected things can get in the way of a crucial task.

Will Parvati be able to complete the job that she has set out to do?

Parvati the Elephant’s Very Important Day shares a universal story about duty, responsibility, and success. Structured as a rhyming picture book, Parvati showcases Kerala temple traditions by narrating a day in the life of a temple elephant.

Elephants, despite their magnificent girth and size, are gentle, and highly intelligent animals who balance the ecosystem. These pachyderms have been preyed on for years and are in danger of extinction.

We hope this story will remind children and adult readers of the beauty and majesty of elephants and their value to our world.
