Did you look at the header picture in this blog? The beautiful temple is the Veeranarayana temple of Belavadi in Karnataka. There are so many beautiful such temples all over our country and many of them contain so many sculptures depicting stories from the Ramayana and Mahabharatha and even from the Panchatantra!
I had seen the depictions of the story “Monkey and the Crocodile” and the “Lady and the mongoose” in the temples at Pattadakkal. This shows that these epics and fables have been evergreen.
Look around you. There are hundreds of stories hidden in our sculptures, our scriptures, our music and even in our customs and rituals reflecting the various aspects of Indian culture.
With some interest and effort we should carry these tales to our children and grand children. Many of these stories show the enormous power of the mind. There are other stories too of wit, wisdom, adventure, bravery, humility and all other qualities which people had in plenty in those days . In this advanced age of technology, we tend to ignore these qualities or rather not appreciate them. If children learnt to appreciate these qualities at an early age, we will have a better civilization.
Many of the stories show also, how simple life was, in olden days and what the values of people were, in olden days. This blog is an effort to bring out the stories to parents who do not know them but want to tell stories to their kids.
Story telling to children creates a special bond with them and also kindles their imagination apart from making them good listeners. Each country takes pride in its own folk tales and it is high time our future generation does not forget our ‘real tales’.
This blog will have a mix of stories from our Itihasas, from folk tales and real life stories all of them from what I have heard or read from my childhood till now. Wishing you all happy reading and comments welcome on improving the blog!!
It is really nice. We want you to continue this blog!
