A wish-list for prizes here...

I'm sure we all nurture that small but not inconsequental wish to find and win something that we dearly want but are somehow never able to buy!

It is a good idea to let the world know of your wish... there may some strategist somewhere who may create a contest where you ultimately win it before it is too late...

Let me begin with my small wish-list for prizes here on indiblogger:

1. Mitsubishi Pajero (Now please, don't write ROFL or LOL)

2. Diving certificate course + deep sea diving in at least three different locations

3. Bose audio system

4. Sky diving certification

5. Some world-class publisher inviting & accepting my manuscript for a novel

Well, this is just the tip of the iceberg, so to say... but makes me dream quite a bit about these goodies of life that have eluded me somehow.

I'm sure you too have a secret wish-list of yours... share it here... maybe the strategists at indiblogger will read and invite the right sponsors! :)

I think I would be too greedy to expect to win a car. Don't win anyways. Irrespective of the prizes, I desire to win just to prove my writing prowess.

Again not specifically interested in Audio system. If I had wanted I could have easily bought one on my own. Diving and sky diving look exciting but never going to get leave at office for that. The 5th one is the most exciting for me - If I can get publishing deal, nothing like it. But not sure how that can be managed through an Indi contest.

Well, that's his list. May not true for others, it differs from one to other and may be yours is "publishing"? Wow!

You already have few stories published and ATB for a whole book :)

My wishlist [beginner's] could be-

1) iPad/ IPadMIni

2) Any automatic car :)

3) MacBook [ this is doable and hoping for one desperately]

4) iPhone 5S in champagne gold color

5) A HOliday trip :)

6) Cash-Cash- More the merrier

7) Cool Kitchen appliances :)

8) Publishing opportunity!!

and for more, follow me at the end of thread :)

Hey your list is streching like elastic------sooo greedy ?

this reminded me of Joshua Loth Liebman (1907-1948) who wrote a best seller book " peace of mind".

At the age of 25 he had made a list of things he needed to be happy and before presenting it to god for demands, he showed it to a village aged man, if he had missed out any important thing. Old man tore his list and wrote a word on a piece of paper   " peace of mind".

Joshua at that time cursed the old man  for his nutty behaviour. later when he grew old, he understood all his pursuits to be worthless and remembered the old man.

Then he wrote the book  " peace of mind" which remained bestseller on newyork charts for a year.

Nice one, Pramod ji... but I wasn't really trying to harp on my wish-list... this thread was meant to just see what sort wish-list would other bloggers come up with.

So far as I am concerned, I don't really bother much about prizes... though I surely want people to read what I write and the surest way of getting this is by winning a prize! So yes, I do love winning!! :)

Yes, I've also found out that winning allows you to be at peace with yourself and this pushes you write in peace!

True story that. So @Arvind don't let worldly temptations take you away from the fables's crux, "peace of mind" @Rio, nice little detour to the thread. :)

Let me add more to my wish-list:

1. "Blogging Ambassador" for TAG Heuer... this is surely a fascinating idea and indiblogger can think of pitching this as a prize. I'm sure many companies will jump at such concepts.

2. "Blogging Consultant" to the Prime Minister of India!

Never seen a desktop as a prize for any contest here on indiblogger.

How about a contest where there are at least 20 desktops to be won! :)

(Obviously with the latest configuration.)

Not necessarily desktops, but you do get AIO systems. Some people did get them during HP meet in Mumbai(Yeah, I know its been a year! >_>")

I believe even if i am given a participation certificate, i am happy dear, i believe more than winning it is the participation which matters.  A material gift can be digested or outdated but having a certificate in one's folder will add immense satisfaction and give one a peace of mind rather than be greedy craving for more and more.

TF Carthick
from Bangalore
7 years ago

When I was in school, even I used to love collecting certificates. Probably even now. They gave me an award in office last year. There was just gift vouchers and no certificate. I was so pissed. Did not even feel like collecting the vouchers.

Thumbs Up!! Laughing

I am so glad that some of us still cherish the certificates rather all the material things offered.  I still cherish my certificates of Best Batsmen, Civil defense 2 rank, National Knowledge commission and NCC B certificate.

TF Carthick
from Bangalore

Wow, Umesh. Real all rounder you have been. So many talented bloggers we have here.

Punit Dubey

I do cherish my collection of Certificates ( a proud half century) Cool

And, Umesh ji...main bhi NCC B Certificate holder hun Laughing Air wala....

Vaise, I love my Std II's Certifcate, the only in sports, that I won for 2nd position in sack-race :P

Aryaansh Sood

@Punit.. Same pinch Tongue out But I won the "sack-race" in III'rd Smile

We hear you Umesh! We've sent out a certificate or two before; we tried them out at the last Dove contest. Also, a couple of bloggers asked us for certificates to help them with college admissions. We'll try and have certificates for all our contests!

TF Carthick

One small catch though, Umesh - The participation certificates from competetions where there was no restriction in participation felt like meaningless pieces of paper. If each school were allowed one team and I represented school, then it made sense. But essay writing contests where anyone can participate and you get a certificate for scribbling any damn junk and submitting did not feel valuable.

as far as wishlists are corncerned , being a gadget freak 

would love to get a few of them :

1. a 1 TB external HDD

2. an iPhone may be too much to expect but still would be nice :p

3. a real good set of headphones , maybe Skullcandy or Razer

4. tickets for a trip somewhere inside India ( have a lot of friends who I've never met) or to Malaysia or Singapore :D 

And well it would be awesome to win a contest atleast one time , and that itself would mean a lot , when put against the best out there :)

@Sankar '...to win a contest at least one time' is surely a great dream to have but this is one wish that cannot be given away as a prize! :)

Just adding to my wish-list:

* One year of unlimited 3G broadband

* Couple ticket to London Olympics (obviously, with airfare and stay there!)

* Opportunity to be an RJ on some radio network (Red FM, Radio Mirchi etc) for 6 months responsible for a program where blogging is discussed between songs!

Arvind ji, seems you have done a good homework before starting this thread...all the Prizes you have wished have been on most of bloggers' wishlist too :D

I recommend you to move to the ranks of Rennie and Vinni, that way you would be in a better position to decide those for us Cool

TF Carthick
