Our Caleidoscope Offbeat Travelogue Contest has finally reached its culminating point. We began two months ago by listing a range of offbeat travel destinations across India and invited our readers to vote the best. However, there was lukewarm response from our audience to choose the best among offbeat tourist spots, since most Indian travellers are not accustomed to travelling to unknown destinations. So we created a special post to exactly define an offbeat travel destination. Despite that we barely got 9 responses for our Caleidoscope Offbeat Travelogue Contest!
Since we have not received the minimum 10 entries for the contest, we have to cancel the main prizes and offer consolation prizes instead. However, we are immensely satisfied with the quality of entries we received for both travelogue and photo contests. Particularly, the winners have submitted works of exemplary quality! They are:
Aditi Das Patnaik, for “Sundarbans: In The Flow”– consolation prize for Caleidoscope Offbeat Travelogue Contest.
Deepak Agarwal, for “The lost city of Hampi” – consolation prize for Caleidoscope Offbeat Photo Contest.
Please join us in congratulating the winners! We shall soon send across their prizes. Apart from these winners, there were 7 other participants who were noteworthy –
|Arnala – A Beauty lost in Mumbai’s suburban concrete jungles||Siddhi Aras|
|Unravelling the mystery of Udvada||Monica Levine|
|Photo feature on various tourist spots||Nikita Gupta|
|Dhanaulti – Sheer bliss off the beaten track||Ambika Nagaraj|
|Chance Encounters In Hampi||Aditi Das Patnaik|
|5 Days in Punjab||Karpagam D|
|Desert Festival in Jaisalmer||Devangini M|

We will publish the remaining articles over the next days. We hope both our writers and readers will find the exercise quite an enjoyable one!
