Tell a tale today!

A story is like life: the more you share it, the better it grows.(Free, free, free!!! This quote by yours truly is copyright free and you don't even need to attribute it to me.)

But do read this excerpt from J.K.Rowling's Harvard University Commencement Address
The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination (J.K. Rowling-Copyright June 2008)

" And tomorrow, I hope that even if you remember not a single word of mine, you remember those of Seneca, another of those old Romans I met when I fled down the Classics corridor, in retreat from career ladders, in search of ancient wisdom:
'As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.'"
For the full text of the speech go to:

If you have a story for Pratham Books, send it in : we'll share it with the world.
