The Grey Brown- Story by Gauri Awasthi Winner of Baalgatha Storytelling Competition

We are excited to publish a prizewinning story under the Baalgatha storytelling competition : The Grey Brown by Gauri Awasthi. We found this story to be very interesting, and very different from the stories that we have published so far. In Gauri’s own words,

I have written a story called ‘The Grey Brown’. The genre of the story is thriller. The protagonist of this story is Nancy, a young girl, and other characters are Luna, Lily, Amelia Brown and the teacher.
The story traces a young girl going to school after Christmas holidays. She sees a statue she did not see in the school before. Strange things began and she wants to unravel the secret of the grey statue.
I like reading thrilling books and like watching thriller, horror or suspense movies, that is why I chose to write a story based on this genre. Hope you like the story. Have a nice day.
