Rishona : Yes indeed and as we are here on National Short Story Day, we welcome you to My Good School Show Season 9 where passion meets education. Today I, Rishona
Anvesha : and I, Anvesha will be your hosts for the event. We have a very special person here with us today, we have the co-author of the Great Tribal Warriors of Bharat Ms. Ambalika Bhat with us. We welcome you ma’am, would you like to speak a few words ma’am ?
Rishona : Thank you ma’am, it is great to be here alongside you on this day. Authors are simply like storytellers and stories are the way life works.
Anvesha : Yes we hear and tell stories everyday, when we need to narrate an incident to someone we tell a story or the time when a quick excuse is needed, our mouth blurts out the best story.
Rishona : Yes, in order to learn something effectively, we often learn it as a story. Moreover, whenever we have to learn about values or lifeskills, then they are best learned as stories.
Anvesha : Indeed, Ambalika ma’am what do you think about the role of stories in human life ?
Rishona : Stories are indeed very important ma’am. They have a meaning which surely puts an impact in some way or the other.The Great Tribal Warriors of Bharat is definitely a book of one of a kind. I am sure ma'am that your book influenced you and motivated you in one way or the other.
Anvesha:I absolutely agree with you. Each story influences us, it has a unique message that is portrayed throughout the tale. I personally love to read stories, of all kinds. Sometimes they are a means to elude from our everyday life and at other times, stories are advisors. Each story, each character, each message is a tie that connects us all. It is not the extravagance but the simplicity of stories that lies embedded in the minds of the readers leaving indelible impressions.
Rishona: Stories can be used in a negative way but those which lend out a positive message, definitely inspire us,help us and some stories just touch our hearts. It is rightly said by Rudyard Kipling - “If history was taught in stories, it would never be forgotten.” To conclude, I would like to quote a line by A.C Benson " All the best stories in the world are one story in reality - The story of escape.It is the only thing that interests us all and at all times how to escape".
Anvesha : With that, we come to the end of our podcast. Comment below and let us know if you liked our podcast. If you want to be a part of similar podcasts, join us. We hope to meet you soon again! That’s all for us today.
