The Power of Culture



The Indian organization Katha focuses on stories from both the oral and written traditions. Katha ("story") is active in the area of literature, promoting reading and the role of stories in education and culture.
That means that there is a lot of text on the Katha web site. Unfortunately the difficulty the visitor initially encounters in navigating the site obscures a great deal of its beauty. Don’t give up immediately. If you stay a while you may discover an Indian literature translation competition, Tamasha's world with stories by and for children, ideas about traditional story telling forms versus TV and the Internet, and the story of the month.
