Stories are the most important thing in the world. Without stories, we wouldn’t be human beings at all.
— Philip Pullman
Storytelling is an art form that is as old as human existence. Stories can make us laugh and cry they can makeup think and imagine, stirring up our emotions. They can also help to heal, brings peace and joy and has the power to change our lives. Stories come alive in telling, establishing an instant connection between the storyteller and the audience.
With around a hundred billion neurons and almost a quadrillion connections between the neurons your brain is an extraordinarily complex organism – so complex, in fact, it borders on the wondrous.
Yet it is still a pattern-seeking instrument that looks to put the chaos of the world into some kind of recognisable order. Stories represent our most powerful and meaningful way of doing just that.
Katharangam is an initiative started by storyteller Shreya Biswas aimed at reviving this age old tradition and to help spread the magic of stories amongst young and old alike. The best way to learn is through stories. Katharangam also reaches out to special
kids and under privileged children helping them to learn and bringing joy to their lives.
Katharangam has carried out over 1000 man hours of workshops with leading global corps (Mercedes Benz, Renault, Metro Cash & carry, Asian Paints, Urban Ladder, Price Waterhouse coopers, Infosys, Young India, Sironix India, Zeus Career & performance Coach etc.…) along with British Council and other leading schools and educational institutions.
