- Sreedevi K for her entry “Silent Promises”
- Bindu Menon for “A Stalker’s Diary”
Our judge says About “Silent Promises”: Closest to the prescribed format. Good storytelling, simple, lucid writing. The joint family backdrop will strike a chord with many. About “A Stalker’s Diary”: Edgy, very different twist to the concept.
Congratulations to the winners! We’ll contact you shortly about the prize money.
A special mention is also due for Revathi S Kumaran’s “Inadequate Identities” because of the story-telling. Not strictly a diary, but a fabulous short story.
Thanks a lot everyone for participating. And a very special thanks to Chandrima for taking up the tough task of judging the contest. By the way, if you have not checked out her novel “A Song for I” yet, do it right away. Beautifully produced book with an intriguing story of music uniting and separating two generations. To be posted soon
