Children’s Day Contest

Childhood is a time of dreams, of shared secrets, of the impossible being possible. Enter the Women’s Web ‘Secret World’ Children’s Day Contest. 

Remember a time when playing Chinese whispers could send the entire class rolling with laughter? When you had your own language to guard against the watchful ears of adults? Today, on 14th November, Children’s Day, we’re kicking off our latest contest that celebrates this magical time. Let’s celebrate the child in each one of us!

What do I need to do? Couldn’t be simpler! Give us a 1 line phrase or caption or dialogue (or any sort of line really!) that you think goes well with this image below. Place your entry as a comment here. 



– 1 line only. Your line can be short or long, but using commonsense rules, it must qualify as a single line. (In other words, writing a paragraph using ten phrases separated by semi-colons won’t work!)

– Your entry must be dated between 14th and 21st Nov, 2010 

Never miss real stories from India's women.

– One entry per person


calvin&hobbes_1.jpgAha – the goodies! For the two best captions, we have a fantastic prize indeed! We’ll be giving each winner* a copy of Calvin & Hobbes: Yukon Ho!, that classic of childhood adventure by Bill Patterson dealing with Superhero Calvin and sidekick Hobbes, perhaps the best-loved imaginary animal that ever existed.

We hope you’re going to come up with a better line than that – so get started!

Remember – contest ends on 21st Nov, 10.00 p.m IST, so get your entry in now…. 

(* While anyone around the world can participate in the contest, at the moment, we’re unable to ship prizes outside India. Prizes can only be sent to a valid address in India)

UPDATE: A BIG Thank you to all who participated! We have our winners – Commentor #12 Ritika and #13 rpreethikrishnan for their comments that totally captured the essence of the photograph! Congrats, winners – your Calvin & Hobbes book will reach you soon!
