How would you feel if something you created was brought to life in a larger than life manner?
Thrilled? Excited? Overwhelmed? Liked you’ve touched the moon and back?
Of course, all of the above! It’s probably how writers feel when they see something that they’ve written being read, listened to or watched by hundreds of people. And guess what? You can get a taste of this exhilaration too!
You’ve probably heard some pretty rave reviews of ‘Salaam, Noni Appa’, which is a play written by none other than the exquisite combination of beauty and brains, Twinkle Khanna aka Mrs. Funnybones.
But did you know that before it was turned into the critically acclaimed spectacle that it is now, it was just another chapter in the actress’ book, The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad?
Now, look how it has been translated into a visual delight directed by Lillette Dubey, with a stellar star cast including Darshan Jariwala and Jayati Bhatia, some amazingly realistic sets and beautiful costumes from Fabindia!
And here’s the thing that’ll make all you creative folk squeal with delight! Just like our Mrs. Funnybones here, you too could see your written words turned into a spectacle on stage, all thanks to Fabindia!
Fabindia has always had a special association with the weavers of India. And this time, they’ve taken it a little further to include those who weave magic with their words.
Their contest, #WeaveAStory, is a call out to writers aged 18 years and above to send in their short stories about India and FIVE selected entries could win some fabulous Fabindia vouchers and goodies!
Before you rush to type that first draft, remember that your story has to be no more than 100 words. Also, nobody likes a plagiarist, so sticking to an original story is your best bet! There are a few more important dos and don’ts which you can check out here. Once you’ve made sure your story complies with all the instructions, you can mail it to [email protected]
So, word weavers, let those creative juices flow! And who knows, Fabindia might just adorn your words in some beautiful garb on a stage for fellow art-lovers to see!
