Spinning the yarn

What makes a good storyteller, in your opinion? Are your favorite storytellers people you know or writers you admire

I love watching people…I am a people watcher. When I am short of inspiration, I need a pen and paper my iPad and head towards the nearest park, mall or street.

Standing in a corner and observing men, women and kids around me is highly intriguing. Their faces speak volumes to me. Two friends who meet each other after decades have a thousand naughty stories to tell. A newly wed couple walking hand in hand happily dreaming about their future together have a story too. A homeless lady in her late 70 ‘s with grey hair and a wrinkled face has a lifetime of experiences to share.
So next time you need a story head towards the nearest public place . They are the best story – tellers.

Please see my post dated 15 September 2014 titled ‘Child Marriages in India’ for detailed information about the evils of child marriage and the impact it has on girl child in India.
