The Flower with Seven Colours – cvetik semicvetik

I read හත් පෙති මල, (The Flower with Seven Colours – Cvetik-Semicvetik) the famous Russian children’s story as a kid. It was so mesmerizing that I longed for reading it again after I became a grown-up but could not find a copy. (When I was a kid we had ample access to Sinhala translations of Russian literature as my late father was an ardent leftist.)

While searching for හත් පෙති මල on the Net, I found three valuable links to the story. Find them below if you too are interested.

  1. I still have some of old Soviet era Russian stories for kids with me. I do have a few of them in Russian too. My kids do not like them as the language which they are written/translated is not “contemporary” or good enough for them. Now they are (the books) just lying in my garage. I also read some of them for my kid by memory when they were too young!
