My poem Silences won the first prize along with a very talented poet Rohan Sen in a contest organised by Contest for the love of poetry on Facebook. It feels good to be appreciated and it is a learning experience when you read such wonderful poems and interact with other writers.
Here is the Certificate Kathleen sent to me by mail.

I know it is just a first step and am focused on the bigger goal. Life has thrown me into a whirlpool and am putting all my strength to come out of it victorious.
Heartfelt gratitude to all my virtual friends , my mentor and guide, my Godfather and real-time friends who have stood by me in these rough times. Love you all.
I won’t give in and wont give up.
