Episode #79: Sandeep Dutt, in conversation with Deepak Ramola, founder of Project FUEL, is transforming education through storytelling. The documented life stories are made into lessons helping students develop a wide range of skills, drawing meaning from real-life experiences of people from various backgrounds and age. Deepak uses his multi-faceted experiences and multidimensional talents towards channelling everyday wisdom and experiences into easy to imbibe and apply life lessons. His extensive work of teaching and conducting workshops. From victims of human trafficking in Nepal to middle school children in Afghanistan to refugees in Europe, he has uncovered life lessons. He has been teaching age groups 4-96 for the past 10 years. A featured United Nations speaker, a Merit 360 Action Plan Executor, a TED speaker, an educator, a writer, actor, lyricist and a gold medalist in Mass Media studies from the University of Mumbai. Deepak has just launched a book with plans to increase his global reach. He talks about how information creates bias and is a hindrance to learning; he believes we need to bake our own take and eat; humans live and tell stories, which is the best way to take learning forward. In the factual news-oriented raconteur, we lose the real story; how do we transcend the stereotypes and become a story!

the park, I know your excitement and I heard you speak more than one. You know, you kind of mesmerized people and you are of the firm belief that an educator has to be a storyteller share with us. Why and every educator or a passionate educator should be a storyteller, wow, that's a great question. I think just the mere fact that we as human beings, that's what we do all the time and by do I mean we live and tell stories whether we do it consciously or you know subconsciously, but we all when we are narrating to a friend, what happened over lunch, when we are telling in a class, how Einstein you know, discovered a whole theory or a mechanism or when we are discovering, you know how the tectonic plates shifting a geography class, we all are telling stories and I think the world now lives in such a factual news oriented three, you know, seconds attention span uh sort of a world that we do need storytellers who are great rack renters who can weave and take you on these small journeys. Um so that you can draw your own conclusions. I think what I love about storytellers who are effective and who are articulate is that they allow you to draw your own perspectives and conclusions from it even before they can tell you what the model of the story is. And I think the more storytellers we have seen the g I think it allows for us to be able to transcend the stereotypes that are linked to often Data from one point. Uh and I think there's a beautiful quote, I once read that in the end we will all become stories and I think that is true and if we will become at the end a story each why not start early and get to participate in what that story will be and how it will sound to the rest of the world.
