Appreciation Is Always Good :)

When I came home from work, there was a package on the dining table at my spot. As usual, my mother had not opened it respecting my privacy. I thought it must be a book that had come in for a review, but it was a surprise in waiting! A few months ago, my short story was shortlisted and was one in the Top 10 best short stories for the Amish Tripathi’s contest hosted by Write India, a Times of India initiative. It felt good and still does, to be appreciated by people who don’t know me and have only read what I have written. Maybe that is how they get to know me. Thinking that was of my share of fame and went on to working on my novel until today when I came home to find a certificate of appreciation from Write India and Times of India, along with a beautiful red Parker pen as a souvenir. I took some time out from gawking at the appreciation certificate and the Parker pen to write this thank you note to the people who conceived and worked on this idea of Write India and made it such a success and motivating writers like me. Also, huge thanks to those who proofread and suggested changes in my short story. Thank you so much 🙂
