    During the event, along with Sadriwala some other Nagpur story tellers like Tejal, Deepak, Deepika and Prachi also recited stories and poetries. The poetic evening took the audience on a roller coaster of emotions. People were seen in tears in one moment and then laughing in other.

    Before the performance in the evening, Sadriwala also conducted a workshop, which began with an introduction to storytelling and poetry writing. The workshop was followed by an interesting activity, during which attendees were divided into five groups and were asked to write a poem or a story. Vivid imaginations and different ideas were observed during this activity.
