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.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.

This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
