In 2006, it was one of my first stories that got translated and published in a magazine. In 2007, another one made it to the pages of another Telugu magazine and now in 2008, one more made it to real pages.
Somasankar Kolluri, one of my reader, a writer himself and translator of my last two stories again translated one of my stories, “Bedtime story” I had written few months back. A day after Full2 Faltu completes 700 posts, the story gets published.
Somasankar tell me the story translated in Telugu is titled “”Anaganagaa..”. These are the usual words with which elders start narrating stories to children, like we start with words “once upon a time…” in English.
The story is published in Sunday magazine of Andhra Prabha Daily.
So even though only Soma Sankar translates my stories and publishes them in print media, I feel happy to find my stories there even though it may not have been in the language I understand. Do read if you can find the paper and tell me if its good!
