A story telling session of Katha Kathan was held in Mumbai on Friday evening to commemorate the birthdays of Rabindranath Tagore and Saadat Hasan Manto with a recitation of their renowned works.
The warmth of literature is truly overpowering. One could sense the excitement in the audience while they waited to enter the YB Chavan auditorium in Mumbai on Friday, but not more than the performers themselves, who had a sparkle in their eyes as they looked forward to the storytelling session for the evening.
Katha Kathan is a platform for storytelling that converts works of literature into spoken word narration. The main aim of the venture is to revive Indian language literature that is often relegated to the background.
