The Great Indian Blogging Contest

As a part of AKLF 2015, The Times of India is presenting "The Great Indian Blogging Contest" – an initiative to commemorate humour in literature. Bloggers are invited to blog on the theme, "The Great Indian Chamcha" – an ode to the culture of sycophancy that runs deepest in politics but has slowly become a part of daily life. This is a much-celebrated platform to bring your literary skills to the fore, a stage to showcase your wit & sense of humour. So, pen down your thoughts and send in your blog link with your mobile number to toikolkata14@gmail.com. Winners will be declared and felicitated at the Bloggers Meet on 16th January at Oxford Book Store, Park Street, 2:30 pm.
