with much fanfare we launched our 'project why star raffle': what better place than an upmarket girls college's diwali mela to do this!
the prizes were well adapted to the page 3 crowd: a tete a tete meal with a famous bollywood star, a make over at a star beauty parlour; we had even got some smaller prizes that we thought we would draw every hour..
the ticket was priced at 30rs!
At the end of the day a very crestfallen team counted the loot: 500rs . Needless to say they had decided not to draw any prize!
The table next to ours had a young rookie tarot card reader. She made over 10 K!
But all is not lost, let us not forget that hope still lies safely within Pandora's box.
