Artist Soul – Prof.C.V.Chandrasekhar

82 years – rock star in classical dance.

What was my take away?

“Dhustana kanda velagi po” – For Prof.C.V.Chandrasekhar his father said it, for me – It was my mother. I don’t like hurting people. I do stay silent, in a non commenting situation, so that I get peace of mind. Speaking is silver, silence is gold.

What Thejas this man has, the karishma the energy to teach and to perform on stage.

Peacock trail by – Storytrails


Above: Meet Lakshmi of Storytrails, our story teller for the day.

Last Saturday morning, I took up the peacock trail offered by Storytrails, details of the trail can be found on the link.

What I am going to tell is not on the finer details of the trail, but about the service you can experience with storytrails.


As soon as we arrived we got introduced to Lakshmi, she then offered us radio receiver, and a bottle of water with carefully packaged bag. The radio receiver was useful in two ways

  1. You could wander around looking at the subjects of your interest, while still listening to story unravelled by Lakshmi
  2. If you are away from the group, you know for sure that you are going to get lost, because the voice is feeble and with disturbed hissing noise. So you could get back in to the group


It is mostly about the storyteller – it is how the story been told, It is not like the usual guide explaining stuff. It is about how your guests get involved, the minute your guest ask questions – you know what I mean. This is something I really loved with storytrails.


Two locations covered in three hours and with much attention to smaller details. I would highly recommend Storytrails to explore places, they are truly professional story tellers.
