I Won

Remember, I recently wrote a post titled “By the Water Cooler” as an entry for a contest organized by the popular writer, Parul Sharma. She was going to select 5 winners and send each one of them a free autographed copy of her latest book, By the Water Cooler.

The 5 winners have been selected and the results were published in her blog, Radio Parul.

I am one of those 5 winners. I am humbled. Oops. I am honored.

I want to thank all my readers for their best wishes and encouraging words.

Here are the other 4 winners:

Vini of And Then

Aarti of Aarti Writes

Mom of RS from Mothering Multiples

SP Menon of The fragments of my thoughts

As suggested by Neha, I have posted here cover page of Ms. Parul Sharma's book, By the Water Cooler. This is her second shot at the coveted The Man Booker Prize award.

  3. Was there ever a doubt that you were NOT going to win?
    Of course you’re going to win. There was no doubt about it.

    I guaranteed it – SG will win.
    Need I say more?

    Joe Namath

  7. Thanks for your complements Joe. You are well known for your brash and bold statements. You have done the same here in your complements also. Thanks Joe. I like it.

    (For those who don’t know Joe Namath. Joe is a legendary American Football hero. He is somewhat equivalent to Sachin Tendulkar, Saurav Ganguly, and Mahendra Singh Dhoni put together. He is also known for his brash and bold statements.

    One year, in a Super Bowl game, his team was a lowly underdog. He began to give statements like his team is going to win the Super Bowl against the heavily favored team. He would finish his statements with the words “We are going to win. I guarantee it”. What a surprise! That year his team won the Super Bowl. Since then, in USA the word “guarantee” is always associated with Joe Namath.)
