"My Mind Was On A Roller-Coaster" - Neelima Raparla on the #6FrameStoryChallenge

Neelima Raparla's work reminds us or a celebration - from the burst of colours to the story line based at a carnival, from the detailed frames for each scene to the repetitive lines that remind us of folk art (and zentangles!). Find out what happens in 'Doli and the Dragon' by scrolling down.


It was an absolute delight when I first came across your challenge. Fifty words but infinite possibilities. My mind was on a roller-coaster when i started thinking of this challenge. One word change, and the story took a wild turn Thanks for this wonderful opportunity. The whole idea of open-source and publishing is unbelievable. Hats off to you guys!
