It helps us connect to the characters at multiple levels. Stories help develop critical thinking and empathy even as the stories convey values, beliefs, attitudes and social norms which in turn shape children’s perception of reality.
Stories from our Grandmothers, Folklores or Indian Scriptures are filled with millions of narratives that can help shape the thought process of a children in a holistic way. For the Expat Indian kids growing outside of India, these stories help them understand & appreciate their background, the similarities & the differences, which go a long way in helping them shape their lives for the better.

Our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of them.
They would be happy to receive your Stars as your appreciation of their effort.
