India Smiles: Winning Entries for Sulekha.com Humour Contest
India Smiles: Winning Entries for Sulekha.com Humour Contest
Description
From the Back of the Book

In 2005, Sulekha.com, the largest online community connecting Indians worldwide, offered a unique opportunity to writers- The India Smiles contest. Writers were invited to submit a humorous piece of writing, fiction or non-fiction. Over a million members of Sulekha.com global community helped shortlist sixty entries out of the five thousand received. A distinguished panel of judges then selected the three best entries with the outstanding entry among them receiving one lakhs rupees and the two runners-up receiving ten thousand rupees each.

This volume brings together the best of the submissions. Real-life accounts of desperate parents lining up potential sons-in-law for unconventional NRI girls, young mothers struggling to make sense of their suddenly topsy-turvy lives, droll accounts of the unintentionally funny collision between technology and tradition, these are unpretentious, tongue-in-cheek stories, sure to bring a smile to your face.
