Kannada version of ‘My Green School’ released
“Nanna Parni Shale”, Kannada translation of the book, “My Green School”, authored by the former Education Minister of Bhutan Thakur Singh Powdyel was released at the concluding conference of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) India.
Talking about his book, “My Green School”, Mr. Powdyel said, “I have emphasised on the holistic development of an individual, which is possible through a strong connect with nature. I believe that the harmony an individual has with nature determines that individual’s engagement with the rest of the world; and this culture can be inculcated in schools towards making us better human beings with strong ecological and humane sensitivities.”
N.T. Bhat, who translated the book into Kannada, said that in all his translations he had tried to ensure that the originality of the language was retained and reflected without affecting the readability in the target language.
