Well-known storyteller Jeeva Raghunath a.k.a. ‘Jeeva Aunty’ brings together stories she has grown up hearing – and loved – from family, friends, fellow storytellers and mentors. She uses asides, the traditional storyteller’s tool, to comment and add her own perspective.Together, they tell the larger tale of Jeeva’s passion, and her willing absorption of influences and experiences that have made her the vivacious and well-loved storyteller she is. At the end of each story is a short, thought-provoking note on similar stories from other cultures. The books, the original told in Tamil and a translated edition in English, are a valuable resource for storytellers, parents and educators.
