Paplu the Giant - A Pratham Books Storytelling Event

Pratham Books, a not-for-profit based out of Bangalore conducts annual storytelling sessions. This year the International Literacy Day fell on 7th Sep and so the gala and mega storytelling event date was fixed on 7th Sep. Around 600+  storytelling champions volunteered to tell the story "Paplu, the Giant." 

This event is the 4th storytelling event i was conducting for Pratham. The previous events were conducted with the books named - King Cobra's Summer, Yakity Yak, and Susheela's Kolams.  I conducted the session this year in my flat. There was just one person in the audience this time. Little one Elizabeth volunteered to read the book. She read the book with great enthusiasm. I gifted the book to her as a token of appreciation. 

I was glad that i was able to be part of this mega educational event conducted in 25 Indian languages through more than 1000 storytelling sessions. As the famous proverb says, "Little drops of water makes a mighty ocean." And so i hope Elizabeth's reading will contribute to the Pratham Books Event in a small way.
