This is a story meant for children.Reviewing these stories are always tough.So I will try my best to be a child.The story is about Tara and some magic that changes her life.But to be a perfect children's tale,it needs some pictures.Otherwise,the story would seem dull.Further, a positive point is the lucid language. I think with some pictures,the story will be a perfect one.

The choice of Good or bad depends on us.
All duality originates in our minds.
It is always better to take the positive side and move on.

Hope the author comes up with more such writings.

This is a sweet, meaningful story of a little girl, Tara.
She dreams of a different world till actually finds herself in a mystical place.
I found the story very relatable, simply making us realise the importance of valuing what we have.
A small town and a young girl with big dreams.
The author has conveyed an important truth with Tara, cherish your present, it is a gift.

Even though I edited the story for Surabhi, I realised the potential of this deep, thought-provoking story.

Tara is a story of a girl disappointed with her life. She wants to switch her life with her brother who has everything in his life she ever wanted. She has responsibilities on her little shoulders to help her family run through days smoothly.

One day while grazing her sheep on the hilltop lying under a tree she was watching the sky. A cloud was moving against the wind and a flying mat came out of it. It was a small dot at the beginning but got bigger as it came close to where Tara was. Will she g

This is a children’s story of a little girl named Tara. Tara is tired of her monotonous life. She hated running the household errands every day including grazing her sheep at the hilltops.
This is a cute story that kids would love to read. It has a moral at the end that’s not only for small children but for grown ups as well. I like reading this thought-provoking story. Not many authors are writing children’s stories these days and since the author has taken a brilliant step in providing some wor

A thought provoking tale of giving value to what we have in life. Even though on reading, I felt this to be a tale to be read to children especially at an age where every minuscule thing seems gargantuan and insurmountable, on further thoughts, Tara is each and every human in this world. It doesn't matter the age, there are only a handful among us who are satisfied with their lot in life and are content and happy. Most of us feel insufficient and unloved and what not, putting us down. Tara by Su ...more
