Guest Idranil Chakraborty tells of his experience of discovering how story is a way to cementing values

Malala Yousafzai's story and her passion for girl's education is told in The Virtuosa Organisation in our chapter entitled 'Fear Conquers Love'. We are thrilled at her being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize (on the day before International Day of the Girl. And thrilled at the 'story' built into her sharing of the prize with Kailash Satyarthi (campaigner against child labour): young and old, Pakistani and Indian, Hindu and Muslim, male and female ... We're excited about watching the further story unfold.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives: Be kind anyway. If you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies: Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank people will try to cheat you: Be honest anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight: Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous of you: Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten by tomorrow: Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough: Give your best anyway - Mother Teresa

Wise men speak because they have something to say;
fools because they have to say something - Plato

Stories are the secret reservoirs of values. Change the stories nations and individuals live by and tell themselves, and you change individuals and nations – Ben Okri

When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion. When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing. When you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors. When you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you. When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice, you may know that your society is doomed – Ayn Rand, Russian Jewish American philosopher
