Love – Adventure – Miracle. Few weeks ago we announced this contest in association with ZAPstore, and asked you to share your lovely stories with us, along with a gadget. We and the judge, Shail Raghuvanshi, loved reading your stories. Love stories written by you were wonderful, we were gripped by your miracle stories and in awe of your adventures. Thank you for sharing and participating in the contest.
Without further ado here is what Shail Raghuvanshi had to say:
Here are the winners as promised. There were two or three excellent write-ups but unfortunately, they could not be included because they did not mention any gadget. Sad.
First Winner – Alka Gurha: Rewinding the reel….
Rewinding The Reel stands out for its flawless narration and the excellent flow with which it has portrayed the elements of love, adventure and miracle. What adds to it is the fact that it has made use of a gadget without making it too obvious. Congratulations Alka.
Second Winner – Asif Aly: Tale of a Story
Tale of a Story is to be applauded for its witty take on the contest and the ability to write amidst all odds. It is a great way of creating something out of nothing. Keep up the spirit Asif.
Third Winner – Saikat: One of those days
One Of Those Days is to be appreciated for its sweet story and the wonderful narration. A cute peep into the heart of a young man. All the best Saikat.
Congratulations to the winners! Alka Gurha wins Samsung Wave S5253, Asif Aly wins a Fuji AX300 Camera and Saikat wins a Sony Walkman NWZ-W262, from ZAPstore! 🙂
And a big Thank You to all those who have participated. Don’t feel disheartened if you didn’t win. We have more exciting contests coming up soon! 🙂
