Members of The Story Line met with the wonderful JEEVA RAGHUNATH (bottom right) when she was in town recently and spent an enjoyable afternoon with her as she shared her story, as well as what she has learned in her travels telling at Festivals in 17 countries.  

We hope to take her up on her offer to visit her in Chennai and have her company, Kathai Kallata, organise a storytelling tour!    

Back row: budding storytellers Vidhya Venkat (see her blog for April 6th 2015, on her own storytelling journey); Sangeeta Deshpande, Eva and Chitra Panchapakesan
