#BachpanWithFlinto Blogger Contest: Building Childhood Memories

Posted: August 7, 2015

“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

The #BachpanWithFlinto blogger contest is a great chance to indulge in some childhood nostalgia; plus, every single entry wins a Flinto box. How cool is that?

Remember the good old days? Yes, the time when you were still a child playing hide-and-seek; seven stones, or lock-and-key with your friends; gulping down yummy golgappas at a mela; waiting for a letter from a near-and-dear one; watching ‘He-Man’ on Doordarshan; or watering the garden along with your mom or dad.

Take a walk through your memory lane. You sure did a lot of things – played more, learnt more, explored more, and had more time than your kids do now.

Do you wish there is one thing from your childhood that little ones today could do? Then, here’s your chance to tell us about it. Pick out just one such thing you did that kids today are missing out on. Write about it.

LogoThis contest is brought to you in association with Flintobox. Flintobox is trusted by more than 72,000 parents to enhance their children’s developmental skills. Undoubtedly, Flintobox is one of the best educational gifts for children in the age group of 3-7 in India today.

Update: Winners’ Announcement

We know you’ve been awaiting the results eagerly, and here they are! The entire team here enjoyed reading all your entries, and had a tough time picking out only a few to win. What’s more, as many of the posts reveal, this trip down nostalgia lane was clearly a very enjoyable one, so Women’s Web as well as Flintobox are glad to have been part of this journey with you.

The first prize winner is Jasmita Dubey, for her post, 20 paise ka bachpan. She receives gift vouchers worth Rs.5000.

The second prize winner is Shipra Pande, for her post, Chuk Chuk Chuk – the indelible memories. She receives gift vouchers worth Rs.3000.

The third prize winner is Mayura Rao, for her post, Kavade Aata – the traditional games of India. She receives gift vouchers worth Rs.2000.

Plus, since we had so many lovely entries, we are giving away 10 Women’s Web coffee mugs for Additional Excellent Entries (not 5, as we thought originally).
