We’re indeed grateful to all these members for making the contest a grand & gala visual event.

      Yes, indeed, we agree with what you say. Please note that even this meagre TOKEN cash prize is unheard of anywhere in the category of FaceBook ‘food groups’. We have at least broken the shackles and started valuing the contributors’ effort a bit. Way to go, we agree. The declared prize money for the entire event was just INR1000. Considering the astonishing response for the event from our members, we instantly raised to amount +100% – that is, INR2500 – and we don’t have any sponsors yet for any of our events.
