Rediscovering Ageing through Stories

Here are video links to Granny O'Grimm's dramatic and scary stories but they will definitely remind you of sweeter memories of your Grandmother telling you stories.

All my memories of my Grandmother are fading with time but her stories are undying and get engraved in me deeper and deeper with each passing day.
These stories have made me the person I am and define the thoughts i imagine and the things I do.
I believe that in Rediscovering ageing, it is quintessential that we revive the stories people have told, and people tell as these stories define us and our culture.
I come from the land of epics like the Mahabharat, the Ramayana, and the Panchtantras which have been carried down generations as cultural wealth.
People are a wealth of stories told and some untold and reviving these and using them as a tool is central to redefining the future of people.
We need to use stories as a medium to recreate,rediscovering and better understand the issue of Ageing and thus address it through stories maybe!
