KNMA celebrates Global Tiger Day with stories revolving around the magnificent big cat with a storytelling session conducted by Usha Chabbra!
The storytelling session led by Usha Chhabra brings into focus facts and references from popular and folk cultures, be it from literature in form of poems and from cinema. Using props and oration, Usha builds the flow of the session narrating in her unique style about the elusive Tiger as an animal and as a concept of collective imagination, slowly bringing awareness over the issue of the loss of tigers and as a significant link in bio-diversity and ecosystem. She re-tells stories from folklore as well as stories from wildlife conservation re-iterating the urgent need to safeguard the ecosystems, especially the Tigers.
All are welcome to join the enthralling session that will explore the world of tigers! The story telling session is open to all (free entry). Refreshments will be provided after the session ends.
