Book Week:Guest Speaker: Ayesha Shariff

14 Mar 2018

The Guest Speaker for Class IV and Class V was Ayesha Shariff who is a visual artist by profession but has a passion for Urdu storytelling. She read a fable by Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi from his famous collection, 'Maulana Rumi ki Hikayaat.' She read a story about a man who swallowed a snake and then asked the children what they thought was the moral of the story. She then asked them to relate real life events that illustrate the moral and gave two examples from her own life of how sometimes it seems bad things happen to us but there is often a higher purpose that is actually protecting or looking after us.
