A shot at story-writing


It even surprised me when I decided to have a go at writing a story. But a while ago I started writing this novella on a Marathi forum – http://www.maayboli.com  It is a decent place to hangout once in a while if you are a Marathi speaker. The novella is titled वारसा which means heritage in Marathi. It was well received on the website. Obviously it is not a very polished product, has its flaws. But after receiving some praise there I decided to publish at least some excerpts on here. The story is written in Marathi and typed in Devnagari. But then thought it is better to give the links. So as of now the intended audience is Marathi folks, but I have the translation on my mind and will see if I can spare time to translate the story.

A short summary of the plot – It is a treasure-hunt fantasy with shades of math-fi. Yes you read it right, it involves a fair amount of mathematical fiction. It takes place in an alternative history where there exists a family with connections to various Indian dynasties and a magical creature at their disposal. But due to a decision in past their a large part of their treasure is hidden at an unknown place. When the current heir and his 3 friends begin the search, an old enemy resurfaces and what ensues ……….. well I’m not here to give spoilers.
