India is undoubtedly a land of stories. We have mythological stories which we call epics like the Mahabharata and the Ramayana and we have a hoard of moral stories in the form of Panchatantra. Naturally, it is a challenge for anybody to become a writer and a good one is an even tougher challenge to complete. A writer in India is not unheard of but good writers are very few and not everybody can write an epic, the best we can do is make remakes of it with the same storyline. Gone are the days when people used to praise small story writers and publishing books and novels with a common plotline would be a breeze. Nowadays, the youth has taken over the country and they are not about eating up that common boy-meets-girl storyline. Therefore, if you want to become a successful story writer in India, you have to possess some serious talent and a little bit of luck.
