Trupti Srikanth

Storyteller and Coach, Ministry of Education

A closet writer, closet singer, and a closet performer, Trupti came out as a storyteller. A Manufacturing Engineer by education, Trupti worked with various IT organizations in areas as varied as technical training, testing, and client relationship until stories came calling. And then, there was no looking back. She believes stories have the power to entertain, educate, heal and influence change. Driven by this belief, she not only tells stories to entertain, but also to enable conversations and raise awareness on subjects like Mental Health, and works with schools to help teachers harness the power of stories in the classroom. She enjoys being amidst children and can become one among them in a matter of minutes. You can catch her playing raconteuse to children and adults alike at various cultural spaces, schools, and literature festivals across the city.
