The thought of writing a novel for the students of immature minds sprouted in me all of a sudden when one of my students innocently told me that she was reading my book in the library, at my asking why she had reached the class late; hearing her reply, I was urged by my sentiment to write a novel for the children of immature minds, because that book-spring in Autumn and other stories, my first book-was for completely mature persons. So, I, then and there, conceived an idea of writing a novel for the children to enjoy themselves reading the world of imagination where super-natural things are found. The story of this novel will surely take them in the world of imagination where they will get the full dose of entertainment and their immature minds will feel elation reading the world of ghosts, demons, mermaids and the strange creatures whose heads are of tigers’, but bodies are of men’s. Above all, they will read the causes why the men were changed into the trees, and how they helped Raghu, a high-school student, who was on the errand to kill the princess, a demon, who owned the magical palace and who turned young men into trees. Raghu, the protagonist, dared to visit and know more about the palace and at last succeed in completing his mission, but, how? Read if you’re earnest to know. From the core of my heart, I wish that God might make my child-reader as confident, courageous, prudent, patient, etc as Raghu, the protagonist of the novel, for accomplishing his or her goal of life.
