Mann ki baat

In today's time when we used to ask a kid to narrate a story, sometimes they give a strange reply like they don't know any story, they know about the jokes.

This point was also told us by our respected prime minister Mr. Narendra Modi in Mann ki Baat. And he was also shocked that children don't know about stories. He also focused on the storytelling part and discussed the importance and benefits of storytelling. He also invited some great people to narrate the stories. One person among them told the story about TenaliRama and his king.

We know there are so many stories related to TenaliRama and every story teaches us some good lessons. There are so many stories related to Birbal and these stories help to sharpen the memory. These stories really provide a very good lesson that we can relate to our life.

Importance of storytelling

Storytelling is the most popular method of teaching. Every person is not literate but every person can tell the story. Storytelling does not require any degree. It is done from the heart. Some concepts get very much clear with the help of stories and it also enhances the knowledge. It acts as the magic that is created by God in the world.

Storytelling is having lots of benefits. Some of them are:

  • It is the best way to communicate thoughts.
  • It improves the concentration of the child.
  • It makes the child understand feelings like emotions, happiness.
  • It improves the listening skills of the child.
  • It improves the skill of reading and writing.
  • It enhances the memory of the children.
  • It enhances their curiosity and imagination.
  • It plays a great role in child development.
  • It also improves their vocabulary.
  • It tells about real heroes of life.
  • It helps to understand the culture.
  • It makes learning easy.
  • It helps in the improvement of social skills.
  • It helps the kids to understand so many things about the world.

But in today's world, you can make your story more interesting so that children would have a great focus on it. You can use pictures or slides to make them more attractive. Children do not like to watch Ramayana or an epic serial but if you will narrate these epics in the form of stories with great pictures and examples they will definitely enjoy it and remember it.

Make it a habit to tell a story to your child especially the small kids, it will enhance their thinking, their knowledge.
