Anton Chekhov

Anton Chekhov

It could have been while I was in 8th or 9th standard that I got introduced to this author, Anton Chekhov.I have no recollection of the story, not a hint of what it would have been about, but I remember the name of the author, a certain twist in his name which never left my memory!

I had always been passionate about reading and writing and since junior-high I had started theater too. It never occurred to me then, that I could make a career out of my passion.

Just two years back, some month when I was running out of cash and could not buy a bestseller I intended to, that I approached this friend in my office to borrow any book which would help me pass my weekend. It was then that I got hold of this book, “100 Selected stories” by Anton Chekhov. The book was to mark a new beginning in my life of which I was totally unaware at that moment.

Now, after two years, the beginning unfolds. I have come to a decision to dramatize Chekhov’s stories because they deserve to be spread among one and all. The creativity and messages his stories hold in them are worth sharing. I also harbor a wish to write, to contribute to literature as Chekhov has done, to touch heart and souls of millions. I might not be able to leave a mark as great as his but there is no harm trying, especially when it is for good!!
