    Come September! Will it be a better month or my long face will get longer? We will have to wait and see. On our part, we are contemplating certain steps to infuse life into this ailing Contest. First step has already been initiated. With effect from August, we have done away with the two separate categories of Narration and Contribution. The two awards will continue to be awarded. We also plan certain major changes in this contest and @Induslady will communicate about them in due course.
    In the meantime, please go ahead and nominate the best that you come across.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Please note that posts and threads from the sub-forums Express Cafe, Forwarded Messages & Jokes, Online Games & Puzzles are not for nomination.

    Nominations are accepted on the strict understanding that they are original writings of the Poster. If it comes to our notice that it is copied, the nomination will be removed with a note that it is a copied piece and hence deleted.



    To familiarize yourselves with FP and its nominating process, please check this link below:
    Finest Posts of IL
    Each member is allowed to nominate up to 4 posts only. This will not include your seconding of a nomination. In other words, only your primary nominations will be accounted towards the permitted four nominations.
    This ensures that each of us have a hand in deciding the winning post as we will filter our choice more closely, thus making the winner more significant.

    The nominations will be closed on the last day of every month. Simultaneously, the nomination thread for the following month will be opened on the First day of that month.

    In case of nominating Feedbacks (reply posts), please remember to add a link to the reply post and not to the original post.

    Dear Cheeniya Sir,

    I am here to nominate the post of @blackbeauty84's Ahhh..onsite. When I read this snippet, the pleasant memories of how IT consultants aspire for overseas visits, and when they get an opportunity, how happy they are, came to my mind. I was managing the offshore operations from 1992-1995 of a US company. Even though this responsibility was handled by the Head of Technical Resource Planning based on mapping of the skillset with the onsite requirement, many times, it is viewed as a reward to an IT professional for a job well done. I used to get requests for onsite placement often from the IT consultants and as I never refuse to meet them. Generally, the approval by the CEO was just a formality and mostly his decision is driven by the recommendation of the Head of Technical Resource Planning. In every companywide meetings those days, I used to tell them that they are the greatest assets of the company. I also brought in a discipline to have lunch with 4 IT consultants at different levels every day. Many new recruits used to say that they joined our company because all of our onsite placement was in the US. From other companies, we used to hear that the US visit is considered as the top of the wish list, Europe was second and any other advanced countries are third. All other Asian countries are considered as a distant last preference.

    @Viswamitra
    Dear Viswa
    Thanks a lot for your first nomination of Ahhh..onsite by @blackbeauty84
    I totally agree with your gradation of any Indian's aspiration for foreign travel. This may have taken a beating thanks to Corona. blackbeauty's narrative style is excellent.

    @iyerviji
    My dear viji
    Thanks a lot for your nomination of Real Worship Of Ganpati Bappa by @muggs
    A couple of decades back, Ganesh Chaturthi used be a private affair. After the pooja, the idols used to be thrown into wells, ponds and the sea. The festival on a community level is a delepment of a recent origin. Ganesh Chathurthi has now become a grand festival with Ganesha even dressed up like an Army Jawan! All these have added a lot of color to the festival.
    Muggs' love of Ganesha floods us from every word she has written. Ganesha richly deserves it too being the top favorite of all.
