    The child in you - book character contest winners

    It seems many of the 17 participants in the book character contest were confused about what was required, namely give some clear reason why you wished to take to be like the child character in the book you chose. Nevertheless, many thanks for attempting something that you will likely not have tried before. We will give participation points to valid entries for your effort.

    There is a clear winner and no joint-winner of this contest. Shampa Sadhya was unanimously selected as the winner for the first prize of Rs.75/-. Congratulations!

    The two second prize awardees of Rs.50/- each are Venkiteswaran and Deepti Shriram. Congratulations to both of you!
    [a bit of advice for Deepti - please avoid needless additional text. There was no need to mention Rownling's later books.]

    It has also been decided to award a consolation prize of Rs.25/- to our young writer Tejas. His prize of will be credited to the account of Dr Deepali Gangwar who submitted the entry on his behalf. Short and to the point- well done, Tejas!

    This was an entirely new concept for a contest where we had to describe the child and his characteristics as depicted in the book of our choice and then relate to those traits to ourselves. I enjoyed participating in this contest and many members had presented unique entries. It was a creative endeavour, I would say. Now the results are announced and I wholeheartedly congratulate the winning participants namely Shampa Sadhya, Venkiteswaran, Deepti Sri Ram, Dr. Deepali Gangwar and little Tejas. Great performance and keep the spirit alive. All the best.

    Congratulations to Shampa Sadhya for wining "The child in you - book character" contest. Her narrative was good. In fact I was a loyal reader of R K Narayan. But it was only after reaching college stage. I was fond of reading Mulk Raj Anand, Khushwant Singh, Shasti Brata etc. I read them only in my youth. Some of the good books in other Indian languages also I read in their English Translations.
    I congratulate Deepti Shriram and requesting Deepali Gangwar to convey special congrats to Tejas
    I am happy in getting second prize and being able to reminisce my young days reading.

    I never imagined that one day I would be asked to write about my favourite child in the book that I read long back. It was interesting to pen that. I congratulate all the winners who have got awards against this contest and wish them good luck.
    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
