Online and face-to-face Speaking & Workshops and author sessions


Rohini offers online and face-to-face workshops and author sessions. Based on her books and experience as a writer and literary translator, she uses stories to explore language, creative writing, mathematics, and translation. 

"As a writer, I tell stories: and I use them in the classroom and outside to teach. Stories bring out the best in us. They stimulate our imaginations, awaken our curiosity, rekindle our wonder in the world around us, and light the creative spark in our souls. Be it language, or literature or mathematics, the lesson we learn through stories stay with us forever."
