How it all began
A founder’s musings: “I always enjoyed listening, exploring, and travelling... Sending little boats down the rivers silently, watching the journey of that boat drift along with the wind and touch the shores now and then. While listening to the silence of life and nature, I also heard several bird calls and the rustle of leaves play music to the silence. Today I continue sailing the sea of Storytelling: exploring new lands, new ideas, connecting with people across the world, exchanging stories, and diving deep into the waters of STORYTELLING .
I have been doing just that for the last 38 years of my life as a teacher, educator, trainer, and Storyteller.
From The Seed To The Tree....
What began as an organization which was child-centric has now grown INTO AN ACADEMY OF STORYTELLING.
A TRAINING TREE – more adult-centric, having trained over 70,000 practitioners from varied walks of life to become storytellers.
Students, theatre artists, film makers, advertisers, journalists, software professionals, government employees, parliamentarians, doctors, trainers, Chartered Accountants, bankers, parents, grandparents, teachers, academicians, researchers, lawyers, and an army of international participants from across the world have all been part of the transformational journey.
We are today the coordinators of The International Storytelling Network [RIC] and The Indian Storytelling Network.
