This story was first telled by Helen Bannerman around 1920 with this problematic title: The story of little Black Sambo…


As this English woman wasn’t a very gifted drawer, the story of this little Indian boy meeting tigers into jungle looks like it takes place in Africa!

Fortunately, many other versions since this first edition show an Indian boy with Indian parents venturing into Indian jungle and meeting Indian tigers..


Aunty read this story to her kids thousands times! Please read it to children’s you know!

You will learn the origin of ghee which Mamaji uses for baking a pile of crepes.
