The importance of Story Telling!

“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.”

The world of stories is amazing. Stories that develop imagination power somewhere sow the seeds of good qualities in the child’s mind. History is replete with such interesting and educative stories. Such stories are called mythological stories.

There are many cultures and civilizations all over the world and they all have their own history. Some stories in each civilization have been woven around the important characters of history. Greek, Hindu, Roman civilization and Biblical mythology are quite popular.

Although there is no evidence that the characters in these stories were real or fictional, these stories certainly play an important role in the moral and social development of children. Mythology introduces both culture and human values.With the help of these stories, you can give new information to your child.

Sometimes children accept the character of the story as their hero. In his practice, he tries to bring the same qualities, which he has heard in the stories.Events in the lives of great characters become a source of inspiration for them.

My parents too, before putting me into bed, recited one, each night. So you could call me a fortunate one. This, inculcated compassion and wisdom and I still, sometimes wonder how life would be if we lived in those fairy tales. This is exactly what I’ve tried to wind up in this poem.

The world of imaginations, riding on the carpet all around the world in a blink of eye.

My childhood dreams to fly in the deep, blue sky.

From deserts to hills, heaven and under the ground.

Millions of stories waiting for me to unwound.

A journey to the islands, the slides on the snow and adventures in the kingdom of apes.

All in my dreams, many mysteries to unfold.

Enchanting beauty of the sea, a tale of the mermaid.

A snake goddess who can take any shade.

My fantasies still giving me goosebumps, for that you may address me a delusional, but it helps rejuvenate.

  1. Very true, we become our beliefs, and 90% of our beliefs are formed by age 7 defining our futures and as mentioned, subject to cultures and geographical region.

    Beautiful poem.
