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!

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA
I have received the book Evolution II.  Thank you so much for all of your assistance in making this book available to me.  You have been so helpful and kind.

You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
