Runner Up - Orange Flower Award 2021
This win is yet another reason for me to celebrate the sisterhood of all the women that keep inspiring me, keep pushing me forward, and keep cheering me on. I was overwhelmed with friends calling me/texting me to congratulate me, to share their joys with me.
The winning story, Lucky, is close to my heart for several reasons. One because it won the second place in an international flash fiction contest, and two, because it is a story that has been churned from a deep place, something that offered catharsis once I was done writing.
The Orange Flower Awards which recognize the power of women's voices, are a much-awaited annual award for digital creators in India. It is organized by Women's Web, India's leading digital platform that enables women to tell their own stories.
