Children across the world love stories. Whether they are narrated by their grandmothers or by voiceover artists in animated cartoons or movies, stories remain the windows to a world unseen by children. They connect people across time and space. A period film on the life of Akbar definitely makes Social Science classes more interesting because it transforms Akbar from being a historical figure engaged in wars and battles to a human being who children, as well as adults, can relate to at an emotional level. It becomes important, however, to examine how the stories can be utilised effectively to inculcate life skills necessary for active citizenship.
