  3. Of the latest things that have been happening around us, I feel Captain Sunil James' story would make an interesting book. An untold story of a sailor.

  6. My parent's love story was the most fascinating for me. How they met, how the love that generated on the roofs and parks of neighborhood still lingers hidden somewhere behind their fights. I am trying to pour all that love in a book but really wants to see that on the big screen too.

  7. They say we all have a best selling novel within us and that's absolutely true.. I too had a love story,yups you heard right, "I HAD". If I get a chance to pen down a story, I would surely write my own.. And the most fascinating thing about my story/life is its not yet ended, she is with someone else but not married yet !!! :)

  8. I really liked the cover and the theme sounds interesting!

    I can't find the question but if we have to talk about love stories and since this book was originally in Hindi, I would like to mention two beautiful love stories: First 'Swami' by Sharatchandra (Originally in Bengali but modified by Mannu Bhandari) & Aalampanah by Rafia Manjurul Ameen.

    1. Oh, if I get a chance to pen down a love story, I would like to create my own story and characters out of my imagination...:)

  9. The story which can become a book or a movie or a folktale can be the rising cases of Honor Killing in the country.It's disheartening to hear such cases when people finish off their own flesh and blood in the name of Honor and think they had fixed everything.For example,take the Noida Double Murder Case.It' quite unbelievable that they killed their own daughter who was only 14-year-old.I don't really know the facts in depth but whatever happened is startling.There could definitely have been different ways to tackle the situation than committing such crime.This is popular only because it gained media attention but this is happening on a wider scale in the country.So, to covey them about one's life & the choices one makes should be entirely his/hers I would like this to be framed as a book / movie/folktale :)

  10. Story of inclusive education giving equal opportunities an full participation to persons with and without disabilities. This inclusion which happened that was ,because of the holistic approach of having academics, medical facilities, vocational training, integrated cultural and sports activities within the same campus.

  12. I would love to read about literally everyone. I believe life gave each one of us new sets of adventures, and it would be lovely to read/watch about others and learn from it.
    As in maybe that cranky old neighbour is really a romantic at heart? Or that stud on the road comes from a broken home? Or maybe that businesswoman is struggling as a single mother?
    Each one has a gift, a challenge, that is different from others, each one's story is worthy to be made into a book/movie or a folk lore.

  13. Being able to watch "The Alchemist" by Cohelo on 30mm screen is an idea that excites me.

  14. 'Usne kaha tha' was a story I read when in school. It was written by Guleri... and the impact was immense... so much that I decided to begin writing. I believe this story is already adopted by our theatre folk for a play... though i have yet to see the play. I wish someone thinks of converting it into a short film.

  15. I want to see Ravinder Singh's 'I too had a love story' being turned into a movie, I found it touching and the best part about it was its honesty and innocence :) I'll forever cherish the experience of having read it!

    Looking forward to the giveaway :)

  16. That's an interesting cover there! Gives that oil pastel look! Looking at the comments I figured what the question might be! (Hope I am right!)

    I love to see Rohit Gore's "Guardian Angel" be made into a movie! I kinda liked the way the book ended! It was an emotional roller coaster reading it! Should be interesting to watch

  18. One of the most memorable stories I know of is from the movie 'The Iron giant' . It is that of a kid who comes across a crashed robot sent by aliens. The robot has lost its original programming of conquering earth, and spends time as the kid's friend. Once the programming returns, the love and memories of the time spent with the kid lead the robot to save the earth instead.
