Win a copy of By the Water Cooler

25 Oct

The first book, they say, is at least somewhat autobiographical. Only once that’s out of the way can a writer look outward for inspiration. So, after the release of Bringing Up Vasu: That First Year, Parul Sharma, fellow blogger, India Helps colleague and general fun person, offers us her second book, quite unrelated to baby talk. And lucky you, By the Water Cooler, the book, is preceded by By the Water Cooler, the contest!

Here’s what you do to win an autographed copy of the book:

  • Write a post, telling a story or an anecdote based in an office. It could be about you, your spouse, kids, neighbor, whoever – it just needs to be based in an office. It can be funny, serious, somewhere in between, but it needs to be based in an office. It can feature a single protagonist or multiple characters, but it…yes, I know, you got it.
  • Link to Parul’s post in the body of yours
  • Put By The Water Cooler in the title of your post
  • Leave Parul a link to your post in the comments section of hers
  • If you don’t have a blog, leave your entry in her comments section and it will be counted


PRIZES – Five autographed copies of By The Water Cooler are up for grabs. The five best entries will be decided by our author’s spouse, “the esteemed M”, so she reminds you to please pick your grouses with him.

LAST DATE FOR ENTRIES – October 31st, 2010. So get on it, will ya?


Okay then, Madame P, fork one over with that promised bribe of Leonidas pralines. 😛

Make her rich, people. I needs them pralines. Thank you muchly.
