Background & Entity

Meenakshi and Rony dreamt of Kahaanighar becoming a synonym for CHILDHOOD.

 

Kahaanighar would be a place where every child of the country shall come together and participate to recognize their abilities and talents.In order to establish this into reality, they had stepped out in 2014 with the first chapter of Kahaanighar in Patna, where the children of the nearby neighborhood started assembling on Saturdays over story telling sessions. Casually, the sessions transformed into movie shows, painting sessions, crafts , poetry, song, music, camps, tours and so on. It was just fun, seeing the kids opening up. The transformation had just began. It was felt within two years that Kahaanighar had become a known name over the community. Kahaanighar as a Trade mark, was included under the auspices of M/s Masonry Training Infracons and allied Services Pvt. Ltd. In order to extend a legal entity for it.

Brief introduction to its establishment & recent activities:

Kahaanighar is a Social Enterprise established by renowned painter Meenakshi Jha Banerjee and design Thinker Rony Banerjee, out of their sheer commitments and interest for development of cultural pro-activeness amongst children through informal interactions, as simple as storytelling. It started in 2014 and right now operating out of its Base office in Patna. Chapters of Kahaanighar have been established in other cities of Bihar and are slowly reaching out to various nooks and corners of India. Until sometimes back, KAHAANIGHAR and its activities were limited to Patna at its Base office and camp chapters. We have recently launched “CLUB Kahaanighar”, as an initiative to reach out to the students and teachers of schools in and around Patna. The activities are being extended through free membership drives amongst school goers.
