I-Genius A Twist In The Tale (50 Best Stories by Children)
I-Genius A Twist In The Tale (50 Best Stories by Children)
Description
About The Book

The Max Life i-genius Young Author is a nation wide search for the best young writers in India. It drew a massive response in its first year. The top fifty stories, chosen by a jury consisting of Ruskin Bond, Chetan Bhagat and the editorial team at Red Turtle, are now presented here.

A dream world populated by rabbits; a scary encounter with Humayun, the Mugal king; and a laboratory where things have gone horrible wrong are just some of the stories in this book. Parents and grandparents, aliens and enemies, best friends and animals walk through these pages.

At times funny and imaginative, at other sensitive and sad, these tales are products of the unfettered imaginations of children. Accompanied by lively illustrations that bring alive this varied world of stories, i-genius A twist in the tale will entertain and inspire readers of all ages.

 

Foreword

The book that you are holding in your hand is more than just a compilation of fifty interesting stories. This book is a celebration of young writing talent from across the country. It's a platform for children to demonstrate their writing prowess. While coundess books are published in our country every year, one such as this is rare. I feel privileged to have been a part of this wondrous journey that Max Life Insurance embarked on with Ruskin Bond, Chetan Bhagat and Rupa Publications to identify promising young writers.

Max Life Insurance has a vision to provide financial security to its customers. Through our products and programmes like i-genius scholarships and i-genius Young Authors Hunt, we aspire to build a better future for this great nation.

If recognized at the right time and encouraged, talent of any kind can take children places. Every parent knows that children are storytellers at heart. Max Life Insurance i-genius Young Authors Hunt is a salute to these master storytellers. We believe this recognition of expression will motivate not just those children whose stories find a place in this book but many more who will enjoy these stories and feel inspired to write.

We are overwhelmed by the remarkable display of potential reflected in the thousands of stories that reached us. Some were emotional, a few autobiographical, lot of them were set in fantasy lands. I am sure you will appreciate the challenge the jury had to face to shortlist the final stories that you find here.

A book such as this is limited by its size. We could celebrate just fifty stories here. But I believe that each child who participated is a winner and my congratulations to every one of the 55,000 children who registered in the Max Life Insurance i-genius Young Authors Hunt 2013.

We have enjoyed reading these stories and hope you do as well. Happy reading!

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
