Kartik, Opus and Tashi, the three curious kids in the book The Ghost Hunters of Kurseong have many adventures. Unfortunately, the printed form of a novel could contain only one. Since the three kids have solved many other mysteries in my head since then, I thought, why not use different mediums to explore them? So I created a detective case for kids to solve.
Mrs Bannerjee’s diamond necklace is missing. Timpu, the security guard who has been arrested says it was Golu’s ghost who did it. Who stole the necklace? Where is it now?
I’ve done this workshop multiple times, in multiple cities and spaces. And everytime, it has been a riot. Want me over for a detective workshop? Contact me now.
