Stories are an integral part of our culture, life & growth. As a kid I have heard many stories from my grandmother, each one was magical & always had hidden meaning via metaphors. Many folklore use metaphors as a way to impart wisdom & life lessons. As we grow older we ignore what is the hidden meaning & make fun of it as some magical unreal stories. Stories weren't meant to be real in the 1st place as we don't hear nature speak & yet we know it has very profound wisdom when there are natural calamities.
I love writing stories, some are inspired by folklore, some by clients & some are to make you think differently.
Hope you like them & do interact in a group or in the comment section. We learn by sharing.
