#StayHomeAndLearn – brilliant story podcasts for children and parents

Sony Music Kids launches “Munna Chachu – Chaturayi Ki Kahaniya”

Having the kids at home during quarantine is fun and frantic in equal measures. We are stuck in the house with limited ways of keeping our little ones entertained, amused and soothed.

Even though kids are in a vacation mood as schools and day cares are closed, Sony Music Kids have found a brilliant way to simultaneously keep kids occupied and educated through their jolly character Munna Chachu, who is here with his treasure box full of audio stories about wit and intelligence, called “Munna Chachu – Chaturayi Ki Kahaniya”.

Listen to these stories with your kids and introduce them to popular historical figures that every Indian child should get to know. Each story for children is lovingly written and performed with attention to the whimsical senses of humour children often possess. Kids will love these stories as they would get to meet unconventional heroes who use the power of their intelligence to overcome adversities. Not only are these stories philosophical but are also filled with humorous elements.

There are 2 albums in the series. The first album is “Munna Chachu – Chaturayi Ki Kahaniya ( Akbar Aur Birbal )”. It is a collection of stories about the iconic Akbar and Birbal, where our intelligent and witty hero Birbal always manages to come up with clever solutions to outsmart the challenges Emperor Akbar throws at him.

The second album in the series “Munna Chachu – Chaturayi Ki Kahaniya (Mulla Nasiruddin)” is a collection of stories where the clever Mulla Nasiruddin proves time & time again that the pen is mightier than the sword. With his wit, intelligence and knowledge, the charming Mulla Nasiruddin provide effective solutions to all problems. In these stories, he unfolds his philosophies on life and his commentaries are lessons on various aspects of life.

Stories with a heart, designed to encourage discussion, that are perfect for parents and teachers. These audio series are available on YouTube, Google Play Music, Wynk Music, Spotify, Amazon Prime Music, Apple Music, Hungama Music, as well as Jio Saavn.

On the auspicious day of Gudi Padua, PadMan actress Harshada Patil will pray & solicit good wishes & blessings for her family, fans, friends & this incredible nation.

While staying indoors & praying with her family in Pune, Harshada hopes that this blissful occasion of Gudi Padwa takes away all the negativity & brings happiness & prosperity.

On this fortuitous moment, she says this year, although the work has taken a back seat untill 31st March 2020, all her shoots & events have been postponed keeping in mind the safety of every citizen, but I am moved & touched with the way almost every citizen has reacted with so much of maturity & solidarity in the wake of recent developments around the pandemic of COVID 19 virus.

Gudi Padwa

This year, Gudi Padwa has brought a bigger purpose & resolve & in this tough times, I feel proud to see the way entire India has shown unity & esprit de corps.The world is suffering, we are under a lock down & curfew but that hasn’t brought the spirit of India down. Infact, it has brought my family members, my friends & almost every citizen closer to each other than ever before.

  Gudi Padwa, which marked the onset of an era of truth, justice & peace, is also the first day according to Marathi calendar. While choosing to stay indoors with my family, I will worship Lord Brahma & Lord Ganpati to bring happiness and joy in our lives..I hope my prayers are heard of and the life becomes balanced.

Talking about her childhood memories associated with the festival, Harshada says “My best memories of Gudi Padwa are definitely from my childhood when me and my sister Monali use to suggest mom which saree should we drape this year for our GUDI. I used to get very excited to go on the terrace after the puja and aarti of our Gudi to see who has decorated their respective Gudi’s the best. Padwa jokes were another fun thing. My Brother Pranav use to ask “Aaj kay ahea?” When his friend use to reply Gudi Padwa, Pranav immediately use to say “Neat bol Gadhva”  and we all use to burst out laughing. The festival has it’s own flavor in different cities of Maharashtra. There are so many fond memories Gudi Padwa”

“I wish each and everyone a very happy Gudi padwa and a prosperous new year. “STAY home and Be SAFE” added Harshada.
