Chandamama-November 1972

And So They Followed! Presenting another captivating Chandamama cover.This time depicting the iconic scene from Robert Brownings 'The Pied Piper Of Hamelin'. While most images which I have glimpsed of this scene capture the piper as an young man, here the piper is depicted almost like an old witch,which is unique in a way.

The rear cover features an animal called Mormoset.Looks like its a hybrid of a monkey and a lion.Hence aptly nicknamed the Golden Lion Mormoset. Never heard of this before.I guess it just highlights the knowledge & educational value that magazines like Chandamama brought to Indian households during a period devoid of Cable Television and the Internet
