Raising a child I feel is the most cumbersome and thankless task I am not a parent but I had once been a child who grew up to be an adult an adult who has to make her way through the intricacies of the world with the help of written words The world is complex and because of its complexities which is analogous to the complexities of human brain one has to learn and un learn at every step of their lives As a child I firmly held on to the belief of a white baby being prized In Indian context this belief might slightly be different from the belief fed to a child say in Nigeria but in its essence there are similarities between them Books barged into my life and tossed my low self esteem out of the window by showing me Pecola from The Bluest Eye 1970 whom I have always considered to be my friend whose worries I wanted to erase A few books later I noticed that if I for once in my life overlook the colour of skin human beings are essentially the same we have our own cultural practices gender norms simultaneous and differing emotions and so on Human beings I feel lack novelty when it comes to wreaking havoc in other human beings lifeLike me there must be a lot of children at different nooks and crannies of the world that hadhave to suffer from a low self esteem during their crucial growing years because of the scorching expectations of the privileged world Adding to parents huge responsibilities towards their children is the importance of making their child aware and be conscious of the world which might not be as privileged as the world demeaning them but is if not eually important as its voracious counterpart and their opinions Chike and the River 1966 by Chinua Achebe is one such book for and about a child The child in uestion need not be a human being who has not yet attained full physical maturity It could be us as well who with a child s indomitable curiosity plunges heedlessly in a book and ends up finding a new world Chike whose name is a derivative of the Igbo word chi according to internet literally translates to power of God Chike the boy moves to Onitsha a big city where his uncle lives for a better prospect of educationThe book delves into the life of Chike and his friends particularly SMOG who find their way to placate their curiosity and once even experience newfound freedom of buying and eating from the market The book tells the story of a child from Umoufia who struggles with his everyday life and continues living even amidst all odds Along with the story of a young Nigerian boy is the steady presence of Nigerian landscape which is intimate at its best This book is a beautiful escape from American and European lifestyles and cultures and for once in my life maybe because of my limited understanding I did not find a children s book problematicAlso on Instagram
