Savitribai Phule is an important figure in history, and very special to all of us at The Storytellers Collective. It is not only her story that inspires, but the beautiful narration by the team at Azim Premji University, and Suman Chitrakar (also our Master Trainer for the program) that brings out her story in today’s time, in a format we all love.
After the making of the book, and while pondering over how we can make India’s narrative arts a learning-tradition, it is Savitribai’s graphic-novel avatar that reached out to us, encouraging us to create a program for young aspiring teachers and children who could learn – without any barriers to economic conditions, caste or creed.
We hope this story, and the art can make place in your heart, just as it did in ours.
