StoryTrails provides a unique way of learning about India. In stead of carrying out the usual touristy routes of sight-seeing and visiting the famous locations, StoryTrails adopts a new path. They carry out what they term as “Trails” which visitors can be a part of. These trails, to use their own words, are “a subtle presentation of some fascinating arts, customs and practices that are unique to the region, which we help our guests discover and learn about“.
We believe this is a great way to actually immerse yourself in the culture of the region and learn about India in your own way, at your own pace.
One such trail that was recently organized by StoryTrails was “The Animal Trail” in Chennai. The idea of this trail was to make children more comfortable with animals, and to dispel the fear and myths that children usually associate animals with. As part of this trail, the children were taken to the Blue Cross which is a shelter for abandoned and stray animals at Velachery.
This article by Kamini Mathai in the Times of India provides more details about this initiative by StoryTrails.
The other such “trails” carried about by StoryTrails include the Peacock Trail, Bazaar Trail and Family Trails.
