Hoo’s Tales is a week long carnival organized by Hippocampus. This past Saturday was their curtain raiser, a day long story telling and puppetry carnival at Cubbon Park. We went for the afternoon session, and the initial thought of the weather being insanely hot got swept over by Richard Martin’s story narration in just few minutes.
Every story teller had their own unique style. While Richard Martin’s narration was interactive with the children from the audience participating in the narration, Jeeva Raghunath’s narration was loud, animated in the form of …
