Whenever my wife goes to a well-known Silk Shop to buy a sari, I would accompany her if I have nothing else to do. As we are regular customers there, the employees in the shop would pamper her with such attention which would make even a Forbes’ billionaire jealous! As the employees spread all the latest arrival before her, she would appear more and more bewildered. She would pick every sari and go outside saying that the true color of the sari comes out clearly only in natural light. She would walk out ten times with ten different saris and finally select one. As I sit here to select the Finest Post of the month, I go through similar pangs. All nominated posts claim attention and I give it to them. I realize how difficult it must be for the Oscar team to select the Winners from out of mind-blowing nominations. The job here is no easier I tell you. The difficulty here is that the ultimate judgment has to be both subjective and objective. To cut a long story short, I zeroed in on two winners finally. Rainy evenings are always fascinating. It is a kind of link between heaven and earth that encourages us to sit near the window munching hot onion bajji and watching the flash of lightening. We watch the people fully drenched and walking through the pools of water smiling joyously. Yes. I can vividly relate to the Rainy Evening as described by maya84. She has been a member for over six years, making us wonder why she is not writing more often. I have pleasure in announcing @maya84 as the Winner of the Finest Narration Award for her A Rainy Evening... What makes a mother special? A million things really! It is not a game like arranging them from one to ten to say which of the million is the greatest. Each one of them is immeasurable. A mother’s resilience in all matters relating to her child cannot be graded. We learn it from Sandyr46’s narration of her friend’s tenacity in restoring her child to normal health. I have great pleasure in announcing @Sandyr46 as the Winner of the Finest Contribution Award for her A Mothers Resilience My hearty congratulations to the Winners and my sincere thanks to Amulet, Anusha2917 and iyerviji for nominating the Winning Posts!
