"Half Ticket": My FlyLite article on Children's Films in India
Last November, FlyLite, JetLite's in-flight magazine, brought out a "Children's special" issue commemorating Children's Day. For this, I wrote an article on Indian films made for or featuring children. You can read a scanned version here on Google Docs (it's a .pdf file, ~1.2 MB).
It is by no means a comprehensive history of the topic :-), so if you see any notable omissions, do tell!
