A curious mother set out on a quest for Sri Vaishnava tradition related stories and books for her then-toddler boys. Unable to find suitable contents, she decided to develop her own book. A humble initiative with a simple goal to narrate stories for children, has gloriously manifested into a cultural organization.
Vaishnavism is one of the foremost philosophies under Hinduism, widely propogated by Swami Ramanujacharya.
A true Vaishnavite is said to be one who is full of empathy towards others and follows the path of truthfulness, peace and is free of vices. A Sri Vaishnava understands his cause of birth to serve Lord Narayana & His creations with purest thoughts and actions.
Srishti Tales is a cultural portal for children imparting the knowledge of Vaishnavism through creative and joyful learning. Our collective initiatives include publication of illustrated books, family board games, joyful workshops, engaging classes and e-magazine.
Through our healthy blend of storytelling, songs, drama, art & activities, children experience our culture and tradition in the best way they can comprehend.
Meet Our Team
Team Srishti is a collective super power of proactive and talented group of like-minded individuals. Like the squirrels of Ramayana, we come together to serve our Sampradayam, with the only intent to spread Santana Dharma to the next generation.
Sri Padmanabhaswamy is the brain and driving force of SRISHTI. Pappan, as we call him, is the creator of each of our thoughts and the resulting actions.
He guides us through all our projects and thus the name SRISHTI – which literally means “creation” in sanskrit. We believe that it is His Sankalpam or Divine Will that manifests through all our projects. SRISHTI will remain a tiny drop in His Ocean.
SRISHTI is the brainchild of Sreevidhya Ramanujam who is a special needs educator and a Waldorf parent. She lives with her family in Hyderabad, India.
An ardent seeker of knowledge, she believes that SRISHTI is the path to her own spiritual journey towards a Vaishnavite way of living. A polyglot and handicraft maker, Sreevidhya is also passionate about yoga, early learning, gentle parenting, zero waste living and minimalism.
Every project at Srishti Tales is led by a team of sevaks (volunteers) with the core team consisting of:
Smt. Prema Vijay - designer of the game - Ticket to Tirumala, one of the creative heads & Bala Vainavan course coordinator cum teacher.
Smt. Rohini Renganathan - Chief advisor and our all time favorite artist. From illustration of our publications to blogs, Srishti's initiatives manifest through her art.
Smt. Gayathri Kannan - A passionate teacher of Carnatic Music and chief advisor. She dons many hats, from content writing to project research and development.
