1. Took a class on storytelling in a nearby government primary school. The story was titled “Out.” It was in Hindi with illustrations.
2. Introduced words like stumps, bat, ball and described types of balls to students.
3. Spoke for about 10 minutes on types of outdoor sports played with pebbles, balls, hide- and- seek.
4. Students wanted to participate in another story. They looked enthusiastic and energetic. Storytelling is one of the best ways to inculcate words and help augment their vocabulary.
5. Walked about an hour after taking the class. Watched a football match in a local stadium for a while. There were some spectators and a few people in the audience. Then went to Shatabdi ground to watch some college students playing cricket with a tennis ball. Last time around a cricket academy used to be there. I was in touch with the coach who belonged to Kanpur, UP. Now it’s a silent phase. I had barely got acquainted with academy players and it has moved on.
6. I have been more active than usual on Twitter. It’s about time I learn tricks of the trade. Tradecraft craftmine minecraft craftsmanship shipworkman Mansetude.
