Not only lonely afternoons, but still-drowsy mornings and breaks betweeen doing homework in the evening and 'one last page' moments before the lights were switched off at night.

Thanks for that- the Russian peasant clothes, beautiful borders on paintings, the vivid colours and detail... took me back to age 8. Remember the scary dragons in Alyonoushka and the pop-up Thumbelina? AND do you remember Prabhat retelling Aldaar Kosey stories to the class in school when Uma bhai came to 'mind' us in a free period?

i don't remember the stories that prabhat told...
but i remember ' Jab Papa Bacche The' and 'Roopvati Vasilisa' , i remember Schooli Ladke and Teen Mote...
ohhhhhh
and the first 'adult' book that i ever read , 'Mera bachpan' by Gorky. oh oh and oh
Those Raduga books were something else...
