Learning to earn a living is only half the job. The other half is to make life worthwhile and meaningful.~ Sathya Sa Baba ~

Story Telling

Story-telling may be the most effective of the five techniques. The stories create role-models that the children will want to emulate. Since the dawn of creation, stories have been thought of when it comes to driving any message home. A story generates interest, captures the attention and leaves a beautiful moral to think about and act upon. Stories bring out the parallel situations of life and suggest solutions; they add colour and variety to the school situation; they widen the imagination and help to sharpen the children’s sensibilities and sensitivities.


Stories can be drawn from any source such as history, folk-lore, mythology or even created afresh. They symbolise the flight of human imagination and plant heroic and adventurous ideals in the minds of children. They have a direct impact on the conduct of children and are consequently extremely useful for cultivating the value of Right Action.
