Winners of Tell a Tale Contest
The winner is Deva
A story told with conviction lacing words that elegantly conveyed the essence of every scene capturing the emotions quite well. He used the serendipity of life to give strength to the character reflecting how an ordinary soul faces challenges of life and breathes energy from his own environment. Kudos to your strong diction & writing style.
The First Runner Up is Hariharan Valady
A Story told taking into cognizance every character, time, and place that any master storyteller would require to take his audience into confidence. He had intelligently used the current affairs to lay foundation for his character's evil notions. A climax well etched portraying how every soul including a Fighter who surrenders to weapons is moved by Love & Emotion.
The Second Runner Up is Krishnan
A story strongly woven with no dangling pointers, closely knitted, gripping the audience till the end to unveil a climax where the protagonist nurtures a devil within him. "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind", essayed by character's reflection of self with the surrounding.
Congratulations to the winners!!
Every story had a striking feature which made it every hard to choose the one that outweighed the other. It would be unfair if i don't mention the efforts of other contestants here. Each story had good rendition with interesting messages told.
