Tell a Tale - a bouquet of three Korean stories by Aditri Bansal

8th December, 2017

Tell a Tale Korea is a bouquet of three Korean stories energetically and beautifully presented by the narrators Ms. Ruma Ghosh and Mr. Subhash Rawat at Tifli International TYA Festival 2017 for children and young audience at National Bal Bhawan, New Delhi.

The first story is Mr. Moon & Ms.Sun. This story with its magical actions & voice modulations takes you on ride to a Korean Village where a mother lives with her two children- a smart boy & a naughty girl. The mother works very hard for her kids. Once she gets away for work to another village across the mountains where she sells delicious rice cakes for her earning. On her way back home, singing and dancing, she was eager to reach to her children. But suddenly a lion appeared from nowhere and pounced on her. What happened next to the mother & her kids....... The audience as small as 4 year olds to elder ones watched intensely and enjoyed & laughed.

After the show I interviewed the energetic story teller Ms. Ruma Ghosh on how she is able to narraate her stories beautifully & interestingly to which she replied that a great amount of imagination is required to tell a story and when she successfully paints a story to children, they get overjoyed and this satisfies her.

Second story- Sim Cheung is about a Korean princess Sim Cheung who is 116 years old and narrates her story about her blind father and herself who had a tough yet love filled life. The story is presented with good imagination and expressions. The narrator has successfully grabbed the attention of his audience. Come and let’s find how a poor girl became a queen.

Third Story is- The woodcutter and the Heavenly Maiden. It is a pourquoi story abput why a rooster crows while looking up at the sky. There was a poor & lone woodcutter who has a desire to get married but can’t find a girl.  Even after getting married he couldn’t live with her wife for long. To find out why…..... come and watch ‘Tell a Tale’ at Tifli 2017 at National Bal Bhawan.
 
 
Laa Po Laa Children's Voice by Adaa Bani

8th December, 2017

The last play of Tifli 2017 was a Gibberish play called Laa Po Laa – Children’s Voice, which is directed and performed by Walter Peter. The play was extremely interactive and full of fun and frolic and caused a lot of laughter among the children present there. Even though the play was in Gibberish, it made so much sense without making any sense at all! I can only think of these few lines to sum up my views of the play.

When childhood is out of control

Say ‘Laa Po Laa’.

When schoolbags are as heavy as stones

Say ‘Laa Po Laa’.

Jab discipline ho baaje zor,

Say ‘Laa Po Laa’.

When new generations take control

Say ‘Laa Po Laa’.

When children are married to gadgets

Say ‘Laa Po Laa’.

When we pick up robotic habits

Say ‘Laa Po Laa’.

When we sing ’dhikchik dhikchik’ songs,

Say ‘Laa Po Laa’.

When the heart is not where it belongs,

Say ‘Laa Po Laa’.
