Dadi/Nani Ki Khaniyan
‘Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world.’ Stories play a vital role in growth and development of children.
We grow up listening to stories and that’s what makes people connected to each other. Storytelling is an ancientand valuable traditionthat still exists. And if these stories are told by our grandparents they become even more precious. Keeping this thought in mind K.R. Mangalam,PaschimVihar conducted a virtual story telling session and invited all adorable nanis/dadis to share their stories with our tiny tots.
The session was enjoyed by one and all as grandparents along with their grandchildren narrated stories using masks, puppets, flashcards, soft toys etc. Some stories also included voice modulation andanimal soundswhich made them more entertaining. Stories narrated by our elders make us think about things in ways we’ve never thought of them before. They teach us history, culture,reinforce moral values,make us cry, laugh and entertain at the same time.Our KRM grandmas created a mesmerizingatmosphere which will be remembered for a very long time. As it is rightly said ” We age not by years but by stories.”
