Good memories are something that you cherish all your life, be it small or be it big and so I decided to share one of the good memories that I experienced long time back and also thought of discussing politics (that I really don’t do much). Ok coming back to my good ol’ memory..
I clearly remember that how I was jumping with joy and was telling my whole family (we live in a joint family) about the Rs. 100 Cheque that I got as a prize from Contest2Win.com. I was like just another teenager who stole money from house (yeah! I’ve done this sin too) to play video games and to go to internet cafes and do all sorts of stuff on the internet [now I think that may be - jo hota hai acche ke liye hota hai, at least - internet is now paying me back more than what I spent on it ]. I got the prize because, I was the first guy to cast the vote in one the polls they had and that’s about 7-8 yrs. back. The cheque came in my name and was account payee and to ensure that I don’t get disheartened, my dad gave me Rs. 100 saying that he’ll be able to en-cash it (he’s such a sweet heart). And guess what… what did I do with that money??? Spent it on internet to play more games on C2W
Why I decided to talk about this sweet little memory of mine? Well, I’m in mumbai and one of my dear friends, Ankita told me about this India Votes Campaign that was launched by Contest2Win and suddenly that memory of mine started floating in front of my eyes and thought that I’ll surely blog about it.. I anyway don’t have much things to do in this flat that Manik is graciously letting me share with him for 15 days! So cool of him! Thanks bro!
After I checked the campaign, I found it cool and thought that I should talk about it on my blog too and so here’s little commentary about it Well, no matter what – things have changed in last 7-8 yrs. coz at least now the prize money has gone up from Rs. 100 to rs. 1500 [who's complaining about recession ?:P]
This little contest is actually a nice initiative that lets you create and take quizzes about the politicians that you know or like. I took few quizzes and found a great deal about the politicians and after taking the quiz, I started reading more about those politicians and I can surely say that – I came to know a great deal about them and probably will effect my decision too.
ciao for now… see ya later!
