Not a soul knew what was happening in the village. But word was spreading fast about the presence of John in his big house, which now stands ruined on the outskirts of the village Nori.
Everyone was stunned. How could it be? John had, in fact, died in a road accident a year ago, and the villagers had buried his body with their own hands. Had he come back undead? Who knows?
But you can know all that in the upcoming storybook, titled: Ghost and the Magic Eye being published by Raman Media Network under the company’s children books brand Raman’s Tech Tale Series: Knowledge Stories for Children.[ Also Read: Business Proposal for Working Partners and Investors ]

Each book in the series will also act as a catalyst to achieve the larger objective of ‘bridging the digital divide.’
As efforts are being made all over the world to take the technology benefits to the masses or the underprivileged sections of society, these books will empower people to take a step in that direction.[ Also Read: Robojit Calling Hollywood ]

All books in the Raman’s Tech Tale Series will be equally useful for children in all parts of the world. These books will also supplement the conventional technology education in various schools.
“A hallmark of the books in this series is that they can be adopted for stage shows by children, TV programmes for children, and short-format movies,” said Raman who has written the stories for the Raman’s Tech Tale Series.
