Dragon Tales - Stories for Children series will be launched on 5 February 2021 coinciding with the Birth Anniversary of HRH The Gyalsey. This series of stories is a gift to all our children in Bhutan and beyond from all of us at the iBEST STUDIOS.
In our Bhutanese society storytelling has always played an important role in imparting timeless social beliefs, morals values besides entertainment. The storytelling through folktales, songs, dances, and other various means have brought people and communities together in the olden times.
Such culture and traditions have forged a unique Bhutanese identity and have helped preserve our culture and traditions, and has inculcated a strong unity and togetherness among our Bhutanese through centuries. However, in recent years this tradition of storytelling has diminished. 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗗𝗿𝗮𝗴𝗼𝗻 𝗧𝗮𝗹𝗲𝘀 – 𝗦𝘁𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗖𝗵𝗶𝗹𝗱𝗿𝗲𝗻 intends to promote this rich tradition of storytelling using various formats of multimedia such as audio, illustrated books, animation, and videos, etc. The project aims to curate the best and most educational folktales, folklore, and legends from different regions in our country which are relevant and meaningful to our young children. Moreover, some stories are also inspired by the lives of Lord Buddha, other historical personalities and anecdotes which are educational and entertaining. Towards bringing more diversity to the project, our firm is accepting entries from young children and elders alike from in and around the country. Next year coinciding with the Birthday of the HRH Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck, the Dragon Tales will be formally launched dedicating to the 40th Birth Anniversary of His Majesty the King and the HRH Ugyen Wangchuck. The stories will be published online through the official online platforms of the iBEST through which our young children and the public can freely access. The Dragon Tales – Stories for Children is a gift of gratitude with the deepest respect to our Majesties and all our children in Bhutan and beyond. An initiative by iBEST STUDIOS & iBEST INSTITUTE 😃✌️🙏
