According to this article in the Hindu, mime can be an effective tool in developing children’s personality and teaching them self-confidence, time management, unity, patriotism, discipline, etc.
Mr Kaladhar who has two entries in the Limca Book of World Records for 24-hour non-stop mime performance and for presenting 240 mime themes within an hour, says that mime was a universal language with a highly entertaining performance that could convey a variety of themes effectively based on humour.
Mr Kaladhar is willing to train children in mime free of cost.
Guess I will have to pay for these classes 😦
So next time my kids develop selective hearing, instead of repeating the same sentence again and again , I’ll just mime it to them 🙂
