ARTHY MUTHANNA SINGH AND MAMTA NAINY
ILLUSTRATOR : ANIRUDDHA MUKHERJEE
She was born in a world where little girls did not matter. But, in the Yousafzai household, Malala’s birth was celebrated. Her father named her after the brave Pashtun warrior Malalai of Maiwand, willing her to be as brave and fearless as her namesake.
As she grew up, Malala loved going to school. But one day, out of the blue, she was told to stay home because she’s a girl. Malala decided to stand up for herself and for her right to attend school. She spoke up, for herself and for every child’s right to education, disregarding the powerful enemy who tried to silence her. So determined and unafraid was she that not even a bullet could shake her resolve!
Inspired by the life of activist and youngest Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai, Braving the Bullet is the journey of one young girl who became the voice of many.
