Any great film is just story; any great book is just a story. Storytelling is something that one enjoys and if one enjoys it enough, one can keep telling stories till one is an old man or an old woman.
Excitement is the magic of childhood. When I tell children stories that make their eyes shine, or jump with joy, for a few moments. I partake of that magic, too. It is a great privilege to be part of the platform called Kahaani.
What fascinated me was the attention to detail in every part of the story, whether it was the characters descriptions and their behaviours, and the setting or context of the tale.
Festivals like Kahaani, provide children exciting opportunities to listen, create, wonder, imagine and experience the joy of stories in a non-judgemental atmosphere.
A story is almost like an ocean. A storyteller is a person on a boat in the middle of the ocean fishing. The boat maybe big or small but the story is always greater, deeper and vaster...Festivals like Kahaani expose the kids to stories not just from India, but from all over the world.
