Deepening Roots, Broadening the Vision

It's crucial that our kids discover their creative sides and acquire a platform where the rest of the world can read their works. Participating in a first of its kind & one of the World’s Largest Writing & Storytelling events has helped SAIoneers channelize their imaginations into well-articulated stories, ranging from the sci-fi space adventures to fables with intriguing animal characters, conveying messages exclusive to each kid. This also connected the SAIoneers to their roots, making them aware of the storytelling tradition in India rampant since the ancient times in forms of puranas & the iconic Panchatantra collection’ how it originated with visual stories, such as cave drawings, and then shifted to oral traditions, in which stories were passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth. There was then a shift to words formed into narratives, including written, printed and typed stories. From visual translations on the cave walls, to being able to visualize stories on an ed-tech platform like Bribooks, we’ve definitely come a long way.
