Lifescapes Anniversary Contest

Lifescapes Anniversary Contest
This contest's validity ended at 11.00 AM IST (GMT+5:30), 11th September, 2010. However we encorage you to continue posting your comments. We, the Lifescapes team, would love to hear what you have to say!

The most interesting alternate title for the anniversary issue of Lifescapes gets a fabulous 2 Nights / 3 Days holiday in a Private Pool Villa at Orange County Resorts.

Some people rhymed. Some reasoned. Some took recourse to a pun. Some just had fun. It was a tough battle, and there were several contenders. There were plaintive cries in the wild asking 'mera number kab aayega?'  There were regal reminders not to 'walk over the tiger, since his weren't zebra stripes.' There were charming references to 'paper tigers', and the necessity for this cat to have 'ten' lives. They were all wonderful, and each was a winner in its own right, but, as in any contest, there can only be one winner. We judged the entries on originality, creativity, clarity and relevance. The jury is now out. And it's time to announce the winner of the Lifescapes Anniversary Contest.

The Winner is......."Save him lest you only catch a tiger by the tale!" by Kishan Carriappa.

We loved it because the freshness of language, the word play, the originality and the concern for the tiger...all came together seamlessly in one captivating caption. Congrats Kishan! We're sure you'll soon be taking back happy memories of a Pool Villa vacation at Orange County. We're certainly taking back very pleasant memories of this contest, and how it grew organically, watered, as it were by the creative juices of all our supporters. Thank you all for the support, and we look forward to seeing you at our resorts.
