    Dear Members,

    Thank you for accepting this sensitive story and participating in the contest by sending in your creative and poetic entries.

    We believe all of you will agree that the sensitive subject line of this story was well handled by Varalotti, inspite of being the only male writer in this ladies community. Hats off to you - Varalotti!

    Before we announce the winning "Title", we want to appreciate the team of judges for their time and efforts - Varalotti, Durga Ravi, Kavya & Shakthi.

    Now, the winning title is...


    "The Bosom Friend" - suggested by Prathi

    Congratulations ... Prathi [​IMG] .

    Your title suggests the intimacy in friendship between the actress and the housewife. We will mail-in your gift shortly, please private message your shipping address to 'induslady'.

    Take a look at the gift given to Prathi's winning title here

    Want to the know the original title given to this story by Varalotti??? It was...

    Appearances!

    Varalotti confesses that "I was not as creative as the gracious ladies of IndusLadies in choosing a title. I drain all my creativity in building up the story and just choose any random word that comes to my mind as the title".

    Special Thanks once again to all those who sent in their entries.
    Good luck to WIN in the future contests to come.

    Very well " coined" Prathi !

    Dear Prathi,
    You have chosen a very apt title for Sridhar's story - both the words fall in place so very well. You are as creative as Sridhar, dear Prathi !
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    WOW i am thrilled!!!

    Thanks all,

    I never thought i could do this. Though i sent in couple more titles, the first one that got to my mind was this. I thought, infact that sridhar would laugh at my entries!!!

    Thanks sunitha for you wishes.

    Mrs.Chithra, thanks for the love you showered through kind words.

    Thanks sridhar for a touching story!!

    Congratulations, Prathi!

    Accept my hearty congratulations, Prathi. You very well deserve the prize as your title is very suggestive and creative to the point of being poetic. I am even thinking of hiring you as my 'Titles Consultant' for I am not very good at giving titles. I drain my creativity in the story that when it comes to titles I just sign off with whatever comes to my mind. For example the title I had originally given to this story in Tamil was "Appearances" (Thotrangal).
    Well done, Prathi.
