The Christmas Holiday Train - E-book contest winnersAn alert guard prevented the The Christmas Holiday Train from coming to a complete halt! There were a few unexpected occurrences as well, with two of the registered participants failing to board the train at their scheduled time. The train, nevertheless, chugged along the tracks and returned smoothly to its boarding point well in time. So the Railway authorities huddled together to decide who were the best travelling authors and, with the background chimes of Jingle Bells, announced the winners...
The first prize of Rs.125/- goes to DR.N.V. Srinivasa Rao and Umesh. I think for both of you, this is the very first time you have won a creative writing contest and your first wins in an e-book one. Well done!
The consolation prize of Rs.50/- goes to Dr Deepali Gangwar and Sanjeev Gupta. You've both participated on earlier occasions and won prizes in creative writing contests. So keep participating!
Let's give a round of applause to not just the winners, but all the 10 participants who boarded the Christmas Holiday Train and made it a fun journey! A special thanks to Shampa for safely bringing the train to its end-point.
Just a closing thought - why didn't anyone think of a tunnel on the route and something happening when the train passed through it?!
