Safarnama

Safarnama, which means "Travelogue" in Urdu, is perhaps an accurate name as we take you around the world with our stories. A project for everyone, we welcome storytellers from across the globe to share their tales with us, particularly those from South and Central Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America, and Indigenous Communities from North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Our tales keep our humanity alive, a quality which we believe the world is in dire need of today. It is dedicated to those who go unheard, the victims of conflict: men, women and children facing oppression, wars and occupation. May the flame of our cultures flicker forever, just as the spirit of resistance and perseverance live on in our stories. May we always fight for what we believe in. #FolkloreAgainstFascism
