Party Time!

Yet another Monday and i guess it was no coincidence that i wore a bright Orange-coloured saree with matching bangles to office today ...'Tis the season to be jolly and the reason is here.

Dear Chidambarakumari,
Congratulations! Yours is one of the 60 shortlisted entries for the India Smiles Contest.

We are publishing two of the shortlisted entries each day from March 10 on Sulekha Expressions. This is to let you know that your contribution "What's In A Name?" has been published today. You may view it at
These 60 exceptional articles selected by our review group will advance into the next round, where our eminent panel of judges will further shortlist thirty semi-finalists whose work will be published by Penguin. The three main winners will be selected from the 30 semi-finalists.

Warm Regards,

As Mandoo puts it, this is Lady on cloud number nine on bench number twenty nine!
Don't go away.
Stay right here and we'll be back after a short commercial break...

*Breaks into a song, twirling the orange saree as in a Mani Ratnam movie *

Cool. I have read that article in Sulekha long time back, I think. Very casual and very very funny. May you win the first prize and send me a copy of the penguin book :)

Congrats Kumari! It will be hilarious to watch you spending first 10 minutes spelling your name to every customer support agent on the phone in the US.
C as in Chicago, H as in Hudson, I as in Iowa ...:)
