Golpo is the Bengali word for stories. It is a curious little word, both a verb and a noun at the same time. It is a word that connected Rituparna's childhood to that of her son's. As a child Rituparna would insist on two stories and two songs every night. She would pretend to go off to sleep testing her parents to see if they'd finish the story they started to tell. When her grandmother told her stories she would kick her legs in the air fighting sleep before it wrapped her in. Golpo, the joy of oral storytelling returned to Rituparna's life as a mother. From a visual storyteller she discovered the magic of the spoken word all over again. Now a performance storyteller, trainer and consultant Rituparna is the Founder of Your Story Bag. Besides her son, she tells stories to anyone who has a heart beating for stories. This channel is her collection of stories that she enjoys telling. Whether you are a child or adult, listen to Rituparna as she tells stories in English, Hindi and her mother tongue, Bangla. Connect with Rituparna on rituparna@yourstorybag.com
