Welcome to Stories from India

Stories are everywhere and for everyone. Stories are how we understand the world around us and the people around us. We tell stories all the time, knowingly or not.


Chitra too, tells stories all the time. Sometimes she puts them into books too. Many of her books are set in India where she was born and brought up.

Chitra goes into classrooms, bookshops and libraries to tell stories, and teach creative writing.

If you enjoy listening to stories or reading stories and would like to find out more about Chitra’s workshops, then do get in touch.
