Learn Share And Care – Blogs By Yogesh Agiwal: Storytelling

In fact the internal storytelling has a strong correlation with external storytelling. Reading this blog the stories that your brain may tell you is “these days blogs of Yogesh are all about brain” or “looks like Yogesh is doing some course on how brain works” or “this blog is again on brain so let me read it later’. There is a possibility that none of the above stories are happening in your brain but these are stories my brain is telling me about you. While these stories are light stories and may not have a big impact but let me talk about some deep internal storytelling of our brain. Imagine you are a 8 year old child who is selected to sing a poem at the republic day function in your school. Your parents have spent every evening for last 3 weeks helping you rehearse. Your father even took 2 days of leave and invited few relatives from home town to attend your performance. The D day comes and everybody is excited about the event including you. The curtain is on and you stand being the curtain all set to deliver with your frill dress that your mother got it stitched especially for this event from her own savings. As the curtain opens you see a huge crowd sitting in the auditorium and you become extremely nervous. The nervousness does not go away and you forget the first few lines of the poem. Your teacher who has also helped you prepare, your parents and relatives who are sitting in the first row are all trying their best to motivate you to get started but more they encourage you to sing the more you become nervous. Finally you sheepishly dragging your feet move out of the stage and someone says “popat” which in marathi language slang means looser.
