Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week day 1 Tarun Tahiliani

How I Met Your Father Giveaway: Winner Announced

The votes are in. Over 1500 of you voted! Yes, 1500+!!! It was quite a roller coaster to watch the poll unravel as there was no clear winner for the first day or two. But towards the end, it got clearer who might win. Or, was it?

This is how we voted for the How I Met Your Father giveaway –

#1 Public Voting

1,506 votes came in. Thanks to everyone who took out the time to read the stories and voted!

#2 Panel Voting

There were a lot of concerns about how someone with a greater “social media” standing might win on factors not based on their love story. Although I think we took care of that with over 1,500 votes (a lot of variety!), we still put together a panel of people from my entrusted circle – friends, family & fellow bloggers! Here they are…

The panel members!

Row-wise L-R panel members: (1) Sakshi, Stefanie, Ruchi, Aman (2) Rohan, Cliantha, Namrata, Karishma (3) Vishal, Ankita, Shilpi, Dhanya (4) Vidhi, Aditi P, Mehak S, Roli GV

The last of the entries poured in on Sunday night, and honestly, it was the toughest job to pick just a few for the shortlist.

The couple that gets maximum votes wins the pre-wedding shoot with Tarun Chawla! Winners will be announced 11th August.

Tarun & a panel of trusted people will also vote (they’ll have a slightly higher weightage), but your votes will count a lot as well!

Here are the love stories that made us fall in love…

…in no particular order. You’ll have to vote for any one of the 4 at the end of this post. Remember to read all 4!

#1 Kartiki’s Love Story

With Russia in the backdrop, this is Kartiki’s college romance of how a jock boy fell for a bookworm girl and how he finally managed to get her to say yes!

Kartiki

Ours is a med school love story spanning over almost a year. At the ripe age of 17, I left home for a medical education in Russia. Little did I know that right beside me on the bus from Moscow Continue reading “Voting Open! How I Met Your Father Giveaway: The Shortlist”
