Quiz on Uncle Lion’s Tales - 1

In May 2015, Radio Sai offered the first episode of Uncle Lion’s Tales series. The intention was to convey values in a visually engaging format, meant especially for children and teenagers.

Since then 85 such stories have been published and the response from viewers has been highly encouraging.

Even as we prepare to present more such animated value stories, maybe it is a good idea to revisit these tales and perhaps spend more time with them so that we make the most of what we have now.

Below are some suggested group specific activities for gurus of Bal Vikas / SSE / EHV to use as a guide for a class activity post joint viewing of the Episode of Uncle Lion’s Tales. A parent / grandparent viewing the episode with their ward can also use these to impart values / good habits.

We invite gurus to send in any other questions that they raised in class through which they were able to impart valuable teaching or provoke a meaningful discussion.

Questions Based on the story “The Echo” (Season 2 – Episode 4)

Note to guru:  Revision of Buddhism principles.



4. Why do you think Krishna got angry and with whom?  Do you think he would have remained angry after he knew it was just an echo?

Note to guru:  Open-ended question for discussion on anger and related effects.

Gurus may consider encouraging students to write out their answers in about 100-150 words and reward the students based on their work. You may also post these answers in the "Comments" section of this quiz. It would help many others too.




5. Whom do you talk to when you have a problem and why?  Who do you think would have the best answers/advice?

Note to guru:  Open-ended question for discussion.  It would be good for the reserved / introverted children to understand that it would help to discuss one’s problems with a trusted elder / friend.  Also it could help to underscore that the inner voice of God is the best source of answers / advice at all times.

Here too gurus can encourage the students to write their answers and post some of the good entries in the "Comments" section of this quiz.



Group 3 and above


The following questions are open ended and intended to provoke meaningful class discussions.  Gurus are welcome to encourage their students to write out the answers in about 300 to 500 words each, select the best answers for each question and reward the winners. Do post these entries in the "Comments" section of this quiz please.  

  1. Which Bhagavad Gita or Bhaja Govindam sloka do you feel best conveys the moral of this tale and why?

  2. Do you agree that all behaviour of others is an echo of your own?  If not, how can the lessons of this tale help?
