Tell your tale

Why are the stories called so?
I think it is because they are meant to be told.
We lost this essence somewhere when we designed the first template for a story. We forgot it was never meant to be written down. It was meant to be told.
We Indians among all; should be able to appreciate this most. The best knowledge base we have had transcended generations by word of mouth. The Vedas!
A good story should have a plot, characters, premise, key events and its subsequent course. Tell it with flair, passion and imagination.
Use your metaphor as the context and the base of your vocabulary. I remember reading somewhere that our epics and puranas were used as metaphors for the instructive dialogues in our Vedas and Upanishads.
Architects and product owners, put down your pen, uninstall MS word, walk to the center and tell us a story.
