Kani and Mani is a project initiated by Muthu Nedumaran and Khasturi Ramalingam. The first app, with interactive and animated stories and games for children, was launched in Singapore in conjunction with Ponggal on Jan 17, 2017. This app was then updated to include music and other improvements in 2020. It was launched for world-wide use on the 15th of January 2021, also in conjunction with Ponggal.
Kani and Mani is only the first app in a series of apps that are in the pipeline. All of them are focused on helping young children enjoy reading stories and playing games while they learn new words and sentences.
