Sharing this unique time with you....Dussehra

Today( 30th Sept.) marks the beginning of 10 days of celebrations for Hindus in India called Dussera. It overlaps with the Muslim festivities and austerities in the same holy month, called Ramzan.

Every festival in India is associated with a story! That is the uniqueness of our collectivistic culture. Every festival is a reason for us to socialise, with neighbours with family and with friends. There is more, every region will have a different story to tell for the same festivities!! Some… Continue

Hi there! I am spreading the word about the new World Storytelling Day group:

If you know of any storytelling events happening near you in March, let me know, and make sure to add them to the World Storytelling Day event list.

Believe it or not the tune on my website was a free mp3 download from a website I have forgotten the name of. I agree it is tough finding stories for children with special needs. I found it much easier to find stories for my ELT students. I've been working with adults and in teacher training more recently and have tried to use stories where I can.

Hei Sowmya, I am also passionate about storytelling and believe it is a wonderful medium for learning. I had a look at your blogspot and it gave me some great ideas. I love Roald Dahl and saw you had written about the Enormous Crocodile - one of my favourites.

Hello Sowmya;

What a great site PS has become and what a great community of tellers. Forgive me for being so late in greeting you. My heart decided to throw a little surprise party at the emergency room... not a heart attack just Pericarditis (non-lethal... only painful condition). I am recovering nicely, was able to go ahead and get married and move. So you might forgive my late greeting. Hope you join some of the groups... mine will pick back up as I get more settled into our new routines. Anyway... welcome to PS and I hope you learn to love it and this wonderful collection of tellers as much as I do.

Thanks Sowmya, I appreciate that.

I don't often tell Indian stories. Perhaps because my closest storytelling colleagues are Indians and they tell them so well, with so much cultural detail. But somehow the Mohini story feels like one I could be comfortable telling.

Hi Sowmya,
I was so happy to see you on here as I am hoping to come to Bangalore later this year. I will be doing some storytelling workshops and performances for a new centre for women called Mothertree. It would be great to meet you and talk storytelling!

By the way, I loved your story of Mohini and the Demon Bhasmasura. Could I have your permission to retell it please.

Thanks so much for your offer and I hope I can return the favor one day?
Do you know about these resources for story research ? I listen whenever I can to The Art of Storytelling with Children Podcast and there I heard a talk by colleague and found her fine list of resources:WEB SITES OF INTEREST
Karen Chace offers a global feast of folktale websites, each with a short synopsis. In addition, there is a smorgasbord of sites focusing on Oral History, Crafts, Arts Education, Puppetry, Grants, Teaching Tools and more!

I am enjoying the exchanges on these pages very much!
