Back in 2011 Kalimpong native Manoj Pandey had a brilliant idea… A twitter handle, @TalesOnTweet, that tells tales … in 140 characters.
The challenges of succinctness, and of brevity versus narratives soon found many a follower & contributor, including giants like Salman Rushdie: [She died. He followed her into the underworld. She refused to return, preferring Hades. It was a long way to go to be dumped.], and actor Kabir Bedi [On the bank of the Ganges, he'd prepared a thousand funeral pyres, not knowing the sorrow of death. Till his son died.]
TalesOnTweet now has a contract for an illustrated e-book and a paperback version. These will contain tweets hand-picked from the hundreds that have been contributed by writers around the world.
