Lakshmi Devaraj

Storyteller, Ministry of Heart

Lakshmi has been making up stories since the time her three year old son refused to eat vegetables and she had to resort to stories to make the vegetables palatable for him. Creating stories on the go comes naturally to her and she started telling stories professionally ten years ago, working with school students in classrooms. One of her proudest moments was when she helped children discover the writer within and go from a blank page to a story in just 3 days during her workshop at Ranga Shankara. Lakshmi has trained teachers how to teach through stories and and has performed at Bangalore Lit Fest and Bookaroo Children’s Lit Fest and can be seen entertaining children and adults equally at various venues in Bangalore.
