Poonam Girdhani

A Dastango, a Freelance Writer and a Radio Artist. “The big reward of a Dastango is to be able to transport the audience to another world where the story unfolds, to recreate the magic through the power of only words,” Ms. Girdhani said. Trying to inject some life into children storytelling tradition, Poonam is an important member of the team Dastangoi for this genre. “Children are undoubtedly more receptive. The way they react is far more heartwarming, but at the same time demanding because it takes more effort to engage with them,” says Poonam.

Poonam is also the host of our 1st Edition of Riwayat Folk Festival.
