    TOW Topic Contest November - Lock and Key - Winners

    Some profound, thought-provoking thoughts. Some practical facts. Some creative write-ups. This summarizes the entries submitted for last month's topic-based TOW on Lock and Key. So which entries stood out to deserve cash awards? Let's put in the key and unlock the box containing the winners' names...

    The first prize joint winners who each receive 60 points and Rs.60/- as a cash award is Venkiteswaran for thinking out of the box with his unique thread which jolts us to exercise self-control to maintain our health, both physically and mentally ; and ar who talks about the uncomfortable consequence of somebody discovering the key to our locked troubles & emotions.

    The special prize winners, who will each receive 40 points and Rs.40/- as cash award are -
    1. Jignesh for his thread which suggests the three vital keys to open the lock of difficulties.

    2. Soundharya for her thread which analyzes how a truth when hidden will have an adverse impact.

    3. Reena Upadhya who brought out the importance of compatibility with her analogy of the lock & key.

    4. Natarajan who speaks about the importance of not opening the keys of our dark side for the general betterment of mankind.

    5. Chitra the simplicity of whose thread brought out the significance of the key without which no lock has value & the analogy in it was something to think about.

    Congratulations to all the winners! All non-winning participants will also be suitably rewarded with enhanced points & cc.

    We would like to remind participants that you should be more concise in submitting threads in the forum and avoid needlessly lengthy posts.

    Congratulations to ar, and also to Jignesh, Soundharya,Reena Upadhya, Natarajan and Chitra.

    The participation was really good, with good threads. It is nice that "All non-winning participants will also be suitably rewarded with enhanced points & cc." . Let that encourage more participation in future contests.

    Today I received a whatsapp message which I found relevant to this topic.
    "Smile is the only key that fits the lock of everybody's heart".
    How true!

    Thanks for the kind messages. Congratulations to all the other winners. Thanks to all the participants, Each one had a great interpretation and meaning of the lock & key concept. As I was browsing through the site, I found an interesting competition along the lines of 'write a story using the picture you see' contest. looked like a unique contest. Request the Editors to have one along those lines.

    Venkiteswaran sir, the practice of rewarding other suitable threads that have not won any awards is not a new introduction. We have been following it for quite sometime now.
