An Afternoon With a Storyteller: Vasavi Mulay



Meet Vasavi Mulay from Pune. Apart from writing beautiful short stories, she is an architect, interior designer and a compère.

We got a call from Vasavi a few days back that she wished to record stories that she had written, so we invited her to our workspace.

With  a warm smile she began recording her stories. We could all sense that something precious was being shared. “Of course” she replies, “These stories are very special to me”. When she finished, her eyes were wet and she was smiling.

We asked her when she began to write. She told us that once she was very sick and recovery had very low chances. It was depressing for her. Then, one day on her Mother’s advice, she started writing stories. And by some magic she started to recover soon.

Stories heal; not only the listener but the teller too. 

Following are the two stories that Vasavi shared with us. Don’t forget to leave a message for Vasavi and tell us what you think about these stories by commenting on this post below.
