Stories for kids I find writing stories for children fun because then I can make a bird talk or a man fly. Children never question why. They understand fiction better than adults and they know its just a story. But they are willing to imagine what it would be like if we could talk to animals or if we wanted to visit nests and if a bird got us sweets from his trips abroad. So I like to write stories for children just because my pen enjoys true freedom.
On a more serious note, I think that certain values are best introduced when young. Let me explain an incident. A few years back, I was involved in a environment awareness movement and as a part of that movement we went to schools around Bombay and we gave talks about why it is good to plant trees. We also made an offer of free tree saplings to people who wanted it for their gardens. To my pleasant surprise a lot of children came later long after the talk and took saplings from us.
Adults when they hear new ideas usually do not have time to do anything about it but children have time to explore. And I am sure that atleast a few among those children today must be loving trees and they understand a little about environment.
Finally I write these stories for the eternal child in me.
