I design and facilitate Social and Emotional Learning sessions that incorporate art and storytelling activities with primary schools in Varanasi. These activities empower children to become more aware about themselves, and express their thoughts, aspirations, and ideas. The sessions nurture their imagination, curiosity and creativity and help the children develop a stronger sense of individuality while adapting to changes around them as they grow.
Currently, I am working on setting up a creativity centre for children in Varanasi.

Finding Me is a peek into a child's world. It prompts young readers to think beyond their everyday reality, and form meaningful relationships with themselves and their surroundings. It creates a space for children to bring imagination and hope into their reality through art and storytelling.
