According to Santanil Ganguly, a theatre practitioner and story teller, "The best way to communicate with a child is through a story". Santanil is one of founders of Jhalpala, a Kolkata-based theatre group, which has been active in children's theatre since 1996. When he is not directing and weaving stories on the stage he never misses an opportunity to tell a story, a tall tale, or a sentimental saga. His fondest memories as a child were indulging in the numerous books available for children in Bengali. Santanil is always keen to share his knowledge and love for Bengali Children's literature and introduce future generations to the treasure trove.
