Happy Valentines Day, dear reader!

Although I don’t believe in all the trappings of the day, I do believe in love and in keeping my promises. That’s just what I’m doing today.

Today, I’m confessing something and attempting to make good on a promise I made two years ago. In 2014, I held a contest on my other blog, Write Tribe. The Language of Love contest (details here) had 28 lovely entries and I had promised the winner a prize of a bouquet of e-books. I confess that despite the good response, I didn’t judge the entries and didn’t reward a prize. My apologies to those who took part. However, I’m reopening this and your entries will still be valid.  In other words, today, I’m holding the contest here, seeking new entries and adding them to the entries already received (so those who took part before, you don’t have to bother now! :)).

So what’s the contest about?

1. Write a story, a poem, an essay on your blog on the following prompt:

“Listen with ears of tolerance! See through the eyes of compassion! Speak with the language of love” ― Rumi

2. The quote need not be used but your writing should be inspired by it.

3. The word limit is 600 words.

4. Use the following picture in your post and hyperlink it to this post.


5. Add your link to the linky at the bottom of this post. This will be open  until 20th February 2016.

6. One entry per blog/blogger.

Prizes: A USD 10 / Rs. 600 Amazon Gift card for each of the joint winners – Rajrupa Gupta and Roshan Radhakrishnan
