Dear fiends and well-wishers, Come November and warm memories of celebratingchildren'sday at school wake me up. The kids are extremely tech-savvy and we are proud parents, aren't we? But what wasn't it wonderful to listen our grandparents tell engrossing stories about kings, queens, Gods and birds. There always was a moral at the end of every story that convinced more than hours of parental advice. The good news is Chemai is going back to her storytelling days - from puppets to digital frames - the stories are out there trying to bring back the childhood we had. Our cover story focuses on some illustrious storytellers of QIennai. And our Pondy cover goes back to roots, though literally! We talk about how tourists can get to know the land and its people better. In our food trail, it's another Fuduchemy special, sprinkled with flavours of fennel. And we look at another timeless tradition in our culture segment with the palm leaf playing hero. Here, our stories are ready to reel you in, are you ready to be mesmerised?

Happy children's day to the child in you! Catherine Editorial Consultant

Even before we developed a definitive language, oral storytelling thrived for it was the only way of carrying the information from time to time. Then came the signs and the symbols that we see inscribed on the stones and scriptures, as story carriers. Since then, we have come a long wav and so has the art of storytelling.

New-age - story-tellers South India, a place known for iLJllch culture and heritage saw a lot of new age storytellers forging forward in the recent times.

It is also interesting to see the story telling communities sprouting for adults across the state. FB community 'Chennai Storytellers' for instance have been doing a commendable job in creating avenues for storytelling where people come, share and learn on a regular basis through storytelling. 'Green walk' is another interesting group of people from Madurai (the Chennai Chapter is in progress), who gather every month and conduct a walk across a natural trail in their city. A historian/archaeologist heads the group and tells stories about the place all along. Such self-interest group focuses on genuine awareness rather than commercial quotients and enriches the space for storytelling. Details:

And we can't blame technology completely to have diminished the art of storytelling, for the modern aids are actually enhancing the scope for storytelling. 'Karadi Tales' is a household name producing 7 series of popular picture/video/audio books for :hildren in India. 'Big Short Films' is another exciting film making brand, venturing into story telling. Their idea is to spread positivity, one film at -i time, by documenting and sharing the real life stories of simple people doing extraordinary things. The best part about digital storytelling is that it is self-explanatory and brings the stories to the palms qf the viewer. 3etails: 07299922881.

White town The area around the Pondicherry rock beach is known for its beautiful mix of French and Tamil architecture. Walk down this zone or take one of Pondy's famous cycle tours and soak in the rich heritage of the former French colony. Auroville & Aurobindo Ashram Auroville is an experimental town that promotes universal peace. You can see many foreigners coming here to seek the higher truth. It's a great place to volunteer for green practices like forestation, water conservation etc. One can also choose to meditate at the Aurobindo Ashram or inside the Auroville dome. Arikamedu This archaeological site will take you to the times when ancient Romans traded with India. .

Pichavaram Pichavaram mangrove forest, the third largest in the world is 57 kms from Pondicherry, a boat ride here will leave you mesmerised. It's a bird watcher's paradise.

This site is located 77 Krns from Pondicherry and is a must-visit for history buffs. Beach The famous rock aka Promenade beach along with its Gandhi statue is known for the beautifully maintained lanes. Though swimming is restricted, a mere walk here will rejuvenate your spirits and is a safe place to stroll even in the nights. Chunnambar and Mudhaliarkuppam While the Chunnambar boating zone is known for the Paradise island where one can gain access via boats; Mudhiliarkuppam is for the adventure-seekers, you have amazing water rides even for non-swimmers. Artefacts aplenty Pondicherry is also a shopping paradise - from colonial artefacts, aromatic candles to pottery, make sure you make the best of your stay here. Check out Geetanjali for artefacts, Kalki for home fragrance or visit one of the many pottery shops in Auroville.

Yurt-on-Wheels If education is your passion and you are blessed with the $t of teaching, Yurt on Wheels (YoW) is a great option to consider in Pondichery. In an attempt to nurture an inclusive society, YoW is the youngest kid in the block - started in 2014 - embracing the children of gypsies into the fold of learning who drop out without completing even primary education in most cases. YoW has also taken sigmficant initiatives such as livelihood training to prevent the nomadic children from resorting to less dignified jobs like begging or peddling at traffic signals. Understanding the necessity to empower the family to sustain the future of such children,

YoW has introduced the Aldu Aldu programme (meaning appreciate the difference in the gypsy language) which celebrates the origin and culture of this Narikuravar community. Aldu Aldu involves participation of qualified jewelry designers and the products are sold in standard retail outlets instead of roadside. Voluntourists can help with alternate education, sustainable livelihood training, social media, funding and marketing activities (for retail networking).
