THE WINNERS of the Hindustan Times caption writing competition were presented their prizes today. A photograph of Collector Sanjay Kumar Shukla with a monkey sitting on his lap had been published in the Hindustan Times for the caption writing competition.

Excited about winning the first prize in the competition, Uma Shanker, head of Uma’s English Academy, said she had always been interested in writing and pursued creative writing and poetry as a hobby. A graduate from the Delhi Institute of Journalism and a former insurance person, Uma believes that the art of creative writing should be inculcated in youth, as
it is a very satisfying hobby.

Zubia Sajid who bagged the second prize said she particularly wanted to thank the Collector not only because he was kind enough to have taken time out to select the winners but also for his work.

A Class 12 student of St Joseph’s Convent Zubia aspires to study law from the National Law Institute of Bhopal and pursue a career in law. She said given a chance she would like to write about issues like female infanticide as she strongly felt about women empowerment and women rights.
