Akkar Bakkar and Akkar Bakkar Times
National Bal Bhavan can claim credit for conducting the first ever experiment, in which a children’s booklet is completely produced by the children. The articles are written by children and the graphics too are made by them. There is a children’s editorial board, which selects the articles & edits them, selects photographs, graphics and cover page. Moreover, children themselves do the layout planning and thereafter the booklet is published. Thus, Akkar Bakkar can be aptly described as a booklet ‘of the children, for the children and by the children’. During the summer session, when thousands of children take part in Bal Bhavan activities, a weekly newspaper ‘Akkar Bakkar Times’ is brought out as an extension of Akkar Bakkar. This newspaper is also totally planned and brought out by the children’s own efforts. The news reports, interviews and features etc. are all written by the children themselves.
