Guest Column: Publisher's ABBY, there is still time: Sanjeev Kotnala

With the ABBY Awards 2016 coming closer, Sanjeev Kotnala, Head catalyst, INTRADIA,  urges Publishers to send entries for the Publishers Abby at Goafest this year…

It is 7th April 2016. Late in the night,Final publisher Abby just got claimed.

You will need an extra drink or two; You need to get sloshed tonight.

Maybe, you will find a shoulder to wet, Maybe, 2017 will be better; Maybe, drinks will not hit you, Maybe, they will hit you harder.

You hate yourself, For having not entered Publisher’s ABBY, You know your work was better; Was it worth to enter!

You hate the Tweet, the Instagram & Facebook pictures, They have just started hitting your smartphone. You carefully switch it off, You know Tweet & pictures will be there tomorrow; You know they could have been all yours.

Yes, maybe it could really have been you, Smiling, proud, celebrating  not just congratulating, Not cribbing disappointed irritated and hiding.

Or maybe, you were not meant to be on stage, Or maybe, what you did last year was trash Only you know...
Where will you be on the night of April 7th! Maybe you can decide, You want God’s help to hit jackpot, Help him by picking the numbers first, There is still time.

Visualise yourself, Use the power of affirmation, Believe in the laws of attraction; Decide now and here, There is still time.

2015- 13 categories just 16 ABBY, Make it better this time, Come enter your best work; There still is time...
