I am Shiv and I have many names and moods,
I am Garud King of the Birds. I have been sent to collect you.
I’m Hanuman King of the Monkeys ! What a thrill! Hanuman.
“You don’t know who Ram is? Sit down my friends and listen carefully”
Have you heard about a boy? A very special boy, a very charming boy, a very naughty boy. Krishna.
Come and see …Ma has gone to collect water and has left a pot full of fresh butter hanging from the rafters.

When our notion of time and space is turned upside down and we are forced into a new reality, storytelling, our most ancient of rituals, becomes vital. Akram remembers the power of the stories that his mum used to tell him as a child – they spanned over many different cultures and were a universal receptacle of wisdom and endless inspiration to him.
