It is said that the art of storytelling can change the way this world thinks and yet is the most difficult task to do. But one organization is changing the status quo, word by word and story by story. Working in the field of community development, child welfare and education, Katha- a non-profit platform organised the ‘Katha Regional Writers Workshop 2016’ on Thursday.


The event saw the participation of more than 400 students from national and international schools in the two-day workshop mentored by eminent personalities from media, literature and publishing.

“Becoming an author is not seen as an easy career. But, Katha workshops are very inspirational. The mentors help us think out of the box and tell us ways to be more expressive,” says Heera Sen, a student of Indian School from Muscat, Oman, who aspired to be an author.


Ujjwal Gupta, a nine-year-old aspiring poet whose attending the workshop for the first time said that he hopes to gain useful insights from the mentors to publish his own collection of poems. He is a student of S.R D.A.V School, New Delhi.

The mentors helping the students are Arunima Mazumdar, Kala Ramesh, Kamal Pruthi, Rashmi Chaudhary, Sangeeta Barooah Pisharoty, Shrutika Mathur, Vikramjit Singh Rooprai and Vikram Abhishek Mall.

Katha has been actively working in the areas of creative writing and translation for over 28 years and has designed many programmes for children.
