Judges Notes on the contest
Home alone in a holiday by Rajgopal Krishnamurthi is a delightful piece of a read that carries an inherent deeper message. The simplicity of the plot married with the dexterous narrative keeps one engaged till the end, while giving food for thought to the reader about how perceptions affect reality and vice versa and how sometimes, all it takes to change your reality is one small determined step. Kudos to the author to bringing such a beautiful story in this small a word limit!
