A wise man once said, “After nourishment, shelter, and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
It’s the stories that give wings to our imagination and take us to places beyond the boundaries of our physical world and into the land of fairies, dragons, and wishing trees. It is in our imagination that we embrace things and situations that we shy away from the real world. Since time immemorial, storytelling has been an integral part of our childhood. To keep the tradition going and to incite curiosity and the love for reading in children, a storytelling competition was held by Presidium. The young, enthusiastic storytellers armed with their props came forth with wonderful tales. While some stories gave them food for thought and some reinforced moral values. The stories were judged based on the expression, confidence, and presentation skills of the children.
