No, I’m not on Red Bull. But yes, I can probably fly now, with one more feather in my cap! 🙂
Yesterday, a pleasant surprise awaited me in my inbox. Apparently, I had won (Joint) Second Prize in the Poetry with Prakriti contest. They were going to announce the winners at Kalakshetra in Chennai, which of course, I couldn’t attend. They haven’t updated the website as yet, but going by the previous years, I guess my poem will be up when they update it.
It had been such a long time since I tried my hand at poetry, and when I saw this contest announcement, I thought I’d give it a shot. The poetry muscle was more than a little stiff, but not completely dead. I hardly expected to get a prize, so this is real yummy icing on the cake!
Honestly, what an unbelievable year this has been!
