“The seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world…” according to Wikipedia.

Zaraawar Mistry and musician Greg Herriges with be presenting us with a story telling program featuring traditional Indian stories and folktales with music and interaction with the audience. Stories, marvelous stories, of retellings of classic myths, historical stories and animal fables from India will be featured.
