Chennai: “Earlier, celebrations that come along with a festival were simpler. But now, people are lost in superficial things while celebrating any festival. Sometimes, the deeper significance of a festival is lost. To give people a better understanding of festivals, I have started a festival storytelling series on YouTube. It is an inclusive and secular series and includes stories about festivals celebrated by all religions. I have narrated Ganesha stories, Krishna stories, stories of Tirupati Balaji, Andal and Onam stories. I either narrate or read stories in the video. People from all age groups are enjoying the series,” says Sudha, who is the founder of Storycorner at Bookmine, an organisation that strives to promote excellence in storytelling.
