Stories lives on for generations.
As I slowly settled and started a conversation with a stranger named Suresh the session just started.
Deepa, the stoyteller along with Krishna and Soujanya arrived on the stage. Deepa started out by calling everyone to listen to stories.
I loved the way she narrated. She was engaging, relating and then narrating. Her mesmerising voice and those modulations she did for those situations were so good that I was recording the sound for whole time.

They were singing keerthanas very nicely. I wonder what stopped them to do a telugu version.
This session reminded me of our old storytelling sessions, 'Burra Kathalu, Hari Kathalu.'
I had my time to get surprised when Deepa started singing, 'Chale chalo,' song from movie Lagaan to express the moment f vanaras constructing a bridge. Her performance brought me a wide smile on my face.
On a request from audience to sing Ram Bhajans, Deepa in return invited kids to come and sing those songs.
I could observe painful expressions and everyone stoofd as it's respectful but it seems to be that, kid was singing a song he knew so well as he sing everyday at school.
After all those surprising singing performances, I took a leave wishing stranger, Suresh best in his life.
I enjoyed and looking forward for more sessions from Deepa.
