At Beyond the Box, we are constantly thinking of ideas to give something unique, refreshing as well as challenging to our community of writers. Two to Tango was one such endeavour to encourage the participants to work along with another writer as a team and bring about a creative synergy. 66 teams participated in this one-of-its-kind contest and the winners were chosen by an eclectic jury panel comprising of prolific authors Ramendra Kumar, Shilpa Suraj and Apeksha Rao. Below prompt was given to the writers and they were asked to narrate the same story from two different points of view.
Beyond the Box in collaboration with Tell Tales – Where stories come to life conducted a one-of-its-kind Mother’s Day Special “Write & tell” contest on the theme #LetterToMaa.

The city of Techtropolis was on a roll like always. Factories were making nothing more than laptops, phones & tablets, and parents were teaching their kids to make robots. Every single household in the city was dedicated to making robots. This city was one-of-its-kind. And that day wasn’t far when the entire city would become controlled by robots.
Books are keys, to wisdom’s treasure,
Books are gates, to lands of pleasure.
Books are paths, that give upward lead,
Books are friends; Come on! Let’s read.
