‘??????????? ????’ is the first Tamil story that we are releasing under the campaign. Written by N. Chokkan and illustrated by Megha Vishwanath, the story is about Kaushik, who stumbles upon a mysterious girl in the forest. The story has also been translated into English by N. Chokkan so that a wider audience can access it. The English version is available here.
Typically, while creating a story, the author writes a story first and the illustrator builds on it through visuals. In the case of this story, N. Chokkan has very cleverly woven a story around Megha’s vivid illustrations which were created by her as part of the #6FrameStoryChallenge. Oh, and not to mention his daughters N. Nangai & N. Mangai who have contributed hugely to his writing process.
