In 2005, Sulekha.com, the largest online
community connecting Indians worldwide, offered a unique opportunity to writers-
The India Smiles contest. Writers were invited to submit a humorous piece of
writing, fiction or non-fiction. Over a million members of Sulekha.com global
community helped shortlist sixty entries out of the five thousand received. A
distinguished panel of judges then selected the three best entries with the
outstanding entry among them receiving one lakhs rupees and the two runners-up
receiving ten thousand rupees each.
This volume brings together the best of
the submissions. Real-life accounts of desperate parents lining up potential
sons-in-law for unconventional NRI girls, young mothers struggling to make sense
of their suddenly topsy-turvy lives, droll accounts of the unintentionally funny
collision between technology and tradition, these are unpretentious,
tongue-in-cheek stories, sure to bring a smile to your face.
