Kitna Shor (How noisy!) is a Pratham book that narrates the story of Sringeri Srinivas as he tries to escape from the world of noise.
I narrated this story to a handful of children at Manzil centre in Kotla Mubarrakpur, Delhi
A great story to talk to children about noise and the nuisance that it can cause. Though I didn’t agree with the ending and spoke about the disadvantages of walking around with headphones to block out the noise.
Throughout the storytelling session, I asked them to recreate the noises on the road, of animals and birds and they did so with much enthusiasm.
