The Zoozoos are here with an IndiBlogger contest!

http://www.indiblogger.in/topic.php?topic=56

And no, Vodafone is not giving away wrinkly little pugs as prizes - instead, you can win a MacBook Pro, Sony Playstations, Sennheiser headphones, Zoozoo bean bags and tickets to the IPL finals with travel included!

Since the IPL finals are around the corner, this contest closes relatively soon. Let us know if you have any questions, and good luck! Smile

Now please don’t ask me if this is just a story… it isn’t. It always happens when the mind wants it to happen!

...the above lines are to just tell you what to expect from my second entry in this contest. WooHoo...loved writing this post. Pure fantasy! :)

I completed my 14th entry with 1 hour to go for deadline. But did not submit as it only concluded the story told in the other 13 episodes and it in itself did not have any use of internet mobile. My total singer story comes to 14,251 words. It would be called a novelette or even a novella. I think this is the first time somebody has written an entire novella for the contest. In all 13 epiodes internel mobile plays central role and has been submitted as 13 seperate entries. Even if vodafone folks don't give me anything, I should express that writing this has been an immensely rewarding experience and I feel so happy that I manage to write fiction on this scale. I do hope folks take time and read and let me know what you think. Lot of my friends have been reading this regulalry and supporting me all along. It is thanks to their support I was able to keep up the momentum and comple this one. Do hope more will read.

For people wondering what it is all about - it is a spoof/satire fantasy/science fiction story where interet mobile plays central role.

Now this is quite a feat, TF. The average word count per post comes to around a thousand words. Had you made it to 5000 words per post, it would have been a publisher-ready manuscript! Interesting and inspiring participation.

Thanks, Mr. Passey. Next time I think I will make it even longer. I will go on doing till I finally write a full fledged novel one day.

My third post was a crossword... the first was a spoof on ad-creation, the second was sci-fi. tried my hand at three different writing styles.

Great stuff, Mr. Passey. You are indeed a true blooded blogger making optimal use of all media. I at times tend to put too much premium on power of words and turn my nose down on other creative uses of media. But every time I see your efforts, I realize how much can be done with things other than words. Maybe one of the days I also get inspired to try these kind of things as well.

booooohhhhhhhhhh the last 2 weeks had been so messed up ...working day in and day out in office ..so many stuffs in mind but could not write and now contest is closed..... could only write 2 "ek internet-ek mobile"  and 2nd is : "Ramayan"... plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz reopen this....;-) its an awsome topic ...... good topic tough....

guess what the i saw  one more blogger blogging my  Ramayana concept.... mmmm inspired!!!!! ;-) 

Arvind Passey

Come on, Ashu, I don't think there is anything bad in someone picking up ideas and concepts... after all, he/she will still need to weave words into them. Btw, I had used the Ramayana link in my review of Samsung Tab for a contest on indiblogger a few months back... do read it when you have the time and/or the inclination.

Hmmm...that Ramayan concept and one by Ruchita on Akbar and Birbal were fun to read..Atleast something unique from normal writers like us Wink

So, finally with 284 submissions Contest is Closed!

I personally feel this Contest brought out largest number of imaginative stories, apart from hundreds of posts on how a Mobile with Internet could affect our lives. Have got my own personal favorite posts, but a number of posts are still to read....so a Sunday would be digested on purpose for the Contest reading.

Btw, How many of you read before Voting? And, does it happen to you that even after reading you don't vote just coz you didn't like it?

thanks janak and all friends And well wishers.

This was my first Indiblogger competition and it got my creative juices flowing after a long...long time .. I have come up with five entries and am pretty chuffed about it... Although what THE FOOL achieved with 14 posts is truly mind boggling and commendable... I have read several excellent pieces and am sure that the competition is going to be extremely tight.... Cheers all :-)
