About the Podcast

Kahaniyon ka Guccha
किस्से कहानियाँ हमारी ज़िंदगी का उतना ही अहम हिस्सा हैं, जितना शायद खाना और पीना ।
कहानियाँ हमें हँसाती हैं, रुलाती हैं, सिखाती हैं।
वो बचपन में सुलाती हैं, बड़प्पन में रुलाती हैं।
कहानियाँ हमें वहाँ ले जाती हैं, जहां हमें गाड़ी या जहाज़ भी शायद न ले जा पाएँ ।
तो चलिए हम भी चलते हैं दूर कहीं, कुछ कहानियों के साथ ।
आप का तहे दिल से स्वागत है इस पॉडकास्ट पर, जिसका नाम है ‘कहानियों का गुच्छा’। इसमें आप सुनेंगे हिन्दुस्तानी ज़बान के प्रसिद्ध लेखकों की कहानियों की कई शृंखलाओं को, जिनको चुना गया है किसी न किसी विषय वस्तु के आधार पर।
तो सुनते रहिए ‘कहानियों का गुच्छा’।

We are the stories we tell!
Stories are as important in our lives as probably food and shelter.
Stories make us laugh, cry, and learn. They carry us to the mysterious worlds of our imagination.
So here we are, ready to take you along with us on a ride with some great stories by some great writers.
We invite you to this podcast ‘Kahaniyon ka Guccha’ where you will hear carefully curated series of stories written by some of the greatest writers in Hindustani language.
