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.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.
