Why are you doing this?

Well, this is the best part (lovely parents & guardians, this is for you). While your kids will enjoy a couple of hours full of awesome stories, magic and fascinating experiments — we will be able to use the proceeds from this session to support hundreds of migrant labourers, daily wage earners, and frontline workers who need our support in these times. All proceeds from this session will go towards #BetterTogether, a campaign by The Better India enabling civil service officers across the country to help the needy with essentials, ration kits, and prepared meals. Know more about the campaign here.

Vikram combines his various interests and work over the years in his storytelling journey. Through folktales, he is trying to explore our rich heritage of oral literature which is slowly being lost and just sitting unread in books. He believes in storytelling as a strong medium of conservation, from nature to human relationships. A TEDx speaker, Vikram has spoken and performed in multiple prestigious conferences and workshops about the power of stories in our lives. When he’s not performing his stories, he is practising the rich folk singing traditions of our country.

Nakul Shenoy is a magician, a sought-after corporate speaker and mystery entertainer based in Bengaluru, India. A globally-acclaimed mentalist and 10-time TEDx speaker, Nakul is the author of ‘Smart Course in Magic’.

Nitika Dial is the founder of WonderLab, an organization dedicated to developing a love for science in children by conducting exciting Science shows and amazing activities is herself a mother of a 4-year-old.
