At the helm of this COVID, when lockdown was becoming the new normal and everything was going haywire; India’s leading literary magazine, The Literary Mirror came forward to infuse positivity among the literary fraternity. It came up with the unique concept of Story to Screen where it accepted open nominations. And without a shred of doubt every author fascinates to find his story on screen, which resulted in a ton of excitement among the authors as The Literary Mirror was going to adapt the best story/book into a Web Series.
After 45 days of nominations, each and every story went through the expert eyes of jury members and the deserving story/books went into Longlist and subsequently into Shortlist. And finally the big day came when The Literary Mirror found the right story in the form of “Bebasi” by exciting young authoress, Silisti Karuriya.
A PhD Research Scholar in Biotechnology and Bioscience from the reputed Banasthali University has been able to touch the emotional chord of those underprivileged in these tough times who we hardly care but are ironically a part and parcel of the society. As Nitish Raj; Editor-in-Chief says, “We are extremely excited to find Bebasi as a stark portrayal of the society without the usual fascination of the la la land. Ms. Karuriya has the depth of those emotions which perhaps could only be felt by a serene heart and she has made us delve deep into our own understandings of the society. We are grateful to Ms. Karuriya for such a masterclass society and we are committed to bring that unbiased emotions on the screen.
