Jalandhar, July 19

The Jalandhar Literary Forum, in association with M/s Krishna Agencies, organised an online Short Story Contest-2021. The concept was drafted and shaped by Randeep Dhillon Mand, a prolific writer who is also the editor of the newly-released book ‘Barefoot Souls’ (a collection of stories by children).

The contest was announced online in June on the Bookrack Group of Facebook and the contest was opened for participants up to the age of 16 years of age. Randeep Mand drafted three different starters of three different stories and the participants were to complete one of the stories out of three up to 600 to 800 words. Sargi Uppal, Jinisha Batra and Naman Sachdev won the first, second and third prizes, respectively. — TNS
