Stories are the most fascinating medium to engage and communicate
Having grown up with Golpos in Kolkatta ( Golpo means stories in Bengali), Janaki founded Golpo Tales Unlimited in 2014, aimed at taking stories and storytelling to children and adults.
She brings a unique style to her sessions, an interactive mix of narration, music, drama and movement. Her sessions for children flow seamlessly between fun and learning, widening children’s imagination and keeping them highly engaged.
Her repertoire for children includes inspirational stories, traditional tales, mythology, biographies and more. She collaborates with Karadi Tales, Tulika and other publishers to take their stories to schools, literature festivals, theatre workshops and other events. She regularly performs across cities in India and abroad.
Stories are often seen as just for children. However, adults appreciate stories and find them engaging, entertaining and relaxing. Stories help create motivation, develop empathy, shift perspectives and behaviors in adults.
From folklore to mythology to inspirational and motivational stories, Janaki offers a variety of storytelling shows for adults that can be adapted for different types of occasions and scenarios.
Some of her popular sessions include Melody and Memory, Kitchen Tales, Unnal Mudiyum Thangachi ( for homemakers), One Step at a Time ( for students), Katha Kelu Katha Kelu ( for women Police personnel)
