KARADI AT KALAKSHETRA!
We had a lovely beginning to the new year with four days of storytelling at the Kalakshetra Foundation. Storyteller Janaki Sabesh captivated the kids with six of our stories both old and new. This was followed by a dramatisation of A Tangle of Brungles in association with Crea-Shakthi where some truly witchy magic came alive on stage!

THE MOUNTAINS OF MUMBAI REVIEWED IN THE HINDUSTAN TIMES
“Kids’ books, like kids, can be wiser than their grown-up counterparts. Karadi Tales’ new title, The Mountains of Mumbai takes barely 40 pages to deliver a message of India‘s and Mumbai’s plurality. Author Labanya Ghosh and illustrator Pallavi Jain set their 40-page story in Mumbai. Doma, who’s visiting her friend Veda, is homesick for Ladakh. What follows is an adventure, as the girls use their imagination to turn this coastal concrete jungle into a faraway mountainside. The illustrations are gorgeous, there’s not a superfluous word in the text. It makes the book a thing of joy – a lesson in adjusting, dreaming big and holding on to friendships.”

“The text is filled with rhyme and the font adds to the playfulness of the book. The illustrations make it come alive and stay cheerful. The extreme close ups of the mouth with morsels make it delightful for the reader.”

They All Saw a Cat by Brendan Wenzel

Darkless by Tanu Shree Singh
On a night when the moon shone and the little specks of light danced on the ceiling, Ani lay awake. ‘It’s dark,’ he said. This heart-warming story brilliantly introduces the themes of depression and isolation. The concise text is accompanied by illustrations that are rich, detailed, and colourful.

WORKSHOP: THE ART OF STORYTELLING
Do you recall the first story you ever heard? Do you remember how your imagination took wings with it? Stories are our first teachers, they are the carriers and keepers of knowledge. Stories are maps through which we explore the world and discover the joys of language.
K-CAT, in association with Karadi Path, organised ‘THE ART OF STORYTELLING’- a workshop on teaching innovations at Chennai and Pondicherry on 11th and 25th January, 2020, by Ms. Janaki Sabesh – renowned actor and storyteller.
