Living abroad Mahwash realized that in the fast-paced life of a modern expat family, children lose touch with their Pakistani heritage, language, and experiences. Through the retelling of these stories, she brings to life our childhood experiences, building curiosity and imagination in our children, giving new life to the famous characters of yore. Mahwash aims to revive the art and medium of Urdu story narration and lessons learned all the while preserving our language and culture.  It’s the kahanis of our nani and dadi, retold for our children again!-Artwork by: Kanwal MushtaqSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/BachpanKiKahaniyan)
