Telling a story is art and children love to hear stories. Listening to stories from grandparents is a blessing to all kids. This folklores play an important role in transmission of culture and important lessons of life. Stories are also an important part of education.


Main Answer.

Here, I am going to talk about a story of a greedy businessman.

What the story was about.

This story is about a shopkeeper in a small town who used to cheat everyone by giving them goods at high price to earn more profit.

Who told you this story?

My grandfather told me this story as usual every evening I used to spend time with him and he used to tell me different stories about animals,kings,wars,and gods I always was eager for evening time as my grandfather used to come home and tell me stories sometimes he kept telling a story and I used to get the original felling of the story.

Why do you remember it?

I remember this story as it had a very strong moral. At the end of the story one intelligent person teaches him a lesson and from that day he stopped to cheat the poor villagers.

And how you feel about it.

I feel so blessed to hear such stories from my grandpa. He taught me very important lessons of life like never tell a lie, respect elders and animals, treat everyone with equality and never practice discrimination. 



Stories always fascinated me and I loved to hear stories from my grandparents. They told me stories everyday before sleeping. My grandfather had extraordinary communication skills and the way he described things today nobody can do it. I loved to hear stories about animals,kings,wars,and the independence struggle. India is a land of diversity and this is seen in Indian stories.

Main Answer.

Here I am going to talk about a story I heard from my grandfather about the independence of India.

What the story was about.

The story is all about the struggle of freedom fighters who struggled day and night to get independence for India and one man United the whole India Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel without his contribution independence was not possible.

Who told you this story?

My grandfather told me his story. His selfless attitude and devotion to the nation was unquestionable. India was divided into more than 562 states ruled by local kings. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel brought everybody together and formed a nation called India. The way my grandfather told me these stories I literally got goosebumps and I was lost in his words.

Why do you remember it?

The way the story was told was unforgettable and the story was an important part of Indian independence. Everyone should know the history of their nation. I have studied about this in my school days so I remember this very well.

I felt great about our legends, their ethics and values. They never got corrupted and behaved greedy; they served the nation with full devotion. I am inspired by their work and I am motivated to do something for my nation.

Part 3 - Follow-up Questions

Has storytelling changed over a period of time?

Yes, definitely. Everything changes with time. My grandmother used to tell me stories from her memory, and had no book in her hand. Now, I see my sister reads out stories to her children from the various books she buys from the market. Telling stories to children has also largely been replaced by watching TV. Grandparents, parents and children are glued to the TV screen for long hours and there is no time left for story telling. 

Which way is better, traditional storytelling or the use of technology in storytelling?

I believe the traditional method is much better. It has a personal touch and increases the bonding between parents or grandparents and children. Unfortunately, it is dying out and programmes like Curious George and Chhota Bheem are taking its place. 

Do you think that generally most people are good at storytelling?

It is very difficult to generalize and answer this question. One thing is sure, and that is that we all tell stories from time to time in our life. Some people are born storytellers and can bind their audiences for long periods of time. They can concoct stories on the spur of the moment. It is difficult to tell whether their stories are fake or real. 

What makes storytelling effective?

The way the stories are told can make any story effective. The use of gestures also helps. Using the right pauses at the right places and good pronunciation makes the stories effective. But, perhaps the most important thing to see is to read the interest of the audience. Fairy tales may amuse children, but may not create an impact on adult listeners. Young people may be interested to hear stories related to their favourite celebs. 

 Is it important to tell stories?

Yes, it is very important to tell stories. They are a good means of communication. Sometimes a message may be conveyed through a story in a much better way than by a simple conversation. 

Is reading books beneficial or watching documentaries better?

Both have their sets of pros and cons. But, I think reading has an edge over watching a documentary. Reading is an active phenomenon, whereas watching a documentary is a passive activity. Reading is not only good for children, but also delays cognitive decline in the elderly. Dementias can be delayed if people read a lot. However, watching a documentary can make things easier to understand, and if made well, can have a long-lasting effect.
