It's fun writing stories.The desire to tell stories and listen to them is perhaps the oldest art of the world, and the best loved, " he says. " Egyptian tombs of 6,000 years ago have imaginative accounts of domestic and social life inscribed in papyri; Greek and Roman bards sang the glories of their gods and heroes in narrative form; ancient India had its fables; the Persians excelled in legends and folk tales; the Middle East gave us the lavish Arabian Night's entertainment; the Bible, the Ramayan and the Mahabharat are repositiries of every conceivable kind of story. I am continuing this tradition."
