Smrthi founded Kagakka Gubakka with a mission to keep long-forgotten stories, games and traditions alive. The name is derived from stories about a conniving crow and a smart sparrow who are friends and about their adventures together. The live events see about 50-60 kids in each session. It starts with a 15-minute warm up session of gamified learning and personality development, followed by three stories – one rooted in mythology, folk and another one that makes them laugh.
