MEDLEY OF TALES
Written by students of the Brigade School at JP Nagar
Writing isn’t easy, and writing a good story is harder. Our four young budding authors – Vriti Garg, Yash Sultania, Aahana Sheeharsha and Siddharth Jayanth, decided to step deeper into exploring how to write a story. They were helped by independent publishing coach, Rajarajeshwari Nagasigamani (A.R. Sara) and mind coach and NLP trainer Anu Krishna, both of whom are published authors and creative writing coaches.
Since these children love reading, this was the next step towards weaving their own thoughts into words. Though challenging, they enjoyed the creativity in writing. It was exhilarating to try to keep the characters alive, ensure thestoryline was gripping, and create a universal appeal. The book ‘Medley of Tales’ is intended for readers of all ages and comprises stories from diverse genres, with themes ranging from friendship, bullying, family ties, romance, adventure and intrigue.
Eventually, ten stories were shortlisted to be compiled and brought to the readers by ‘Rain Canvas’, a literary Wheel Club of Bangalore IT Corridor, who in turn have committed proceeds of the sale to purchase tablets for ten students of Grade 10 of the Sai Gurukul School – a school for the underprivileged, for the term 2020-21.
