    A wonderful contest conducted on idioms and phrases by Lead Editor Jagdish Patro. I thought of taking part but couldn't manage. Looking forward to more such contests from him. And by the way, congrats to all the winners, including those who won the consolation prizes. The rest, don't get disheartened. Participating in itself is a kind of win. We improve upon our writing and creative skills. The stories I read were all worth reading.
    Patience and perseverance pays

    Congratulations to Soundharya for being the winner & in addition I also extend my greetings to the winners of the Runner-Up & Consolation Prizes for the Short story writing contest.

    Congratulations to each and every winner. The stories were really interesting. @Jagdish Patro I want to make a request. It will be difficult but would be appreciable if the writers who did not win get to know their shortcomings. I feel a few stories were also equally good but did not receive any prize which is unfortunate. Knowing about weakness in their writing can help them in the future. Hope you will consider my request.

    Thank you Jagdish and team for finding my entry to be worthy of a prize. I heartily congratulate Soundharya, the winner, Venkiteswaran sir, my co-winner and Neelam, Sankalan and Sanjeev, the consolation prize winners! It was a well-organized contest and we did get a good response from the members.

    The cash rewards and points to the winners have been credited.

    Shampa, I doubt whether your request can be acceded to. It is rather not feasible to explain to each participant where he had gone wrong. I think it would be better to make a self-assessment after going through the other entries.
