Christina Fernandes, a purchase assistant who works with a French pharmaceutical company, was the lucky winner of The Gulf Indian Weekly’s 75th Read ‘n’ Win contest. She came to our office last week to collect her prize, a Quantum Wave Tablet.

During her visit, Christina, who is from Goa and has been living in Dubai for the past 16 years, told us that she spotted a copy of The Gulf Indian Weekly at the Indian Consulate in Dubai. “The name instantly grabbed my attention, among the bunch of chronicles kept there. I picked up The Gulf Indian and started reading it. It was nice to read bits of news from here and there in India. Since I couldn’t finish reading it, while I was there, I took the copy home with me,” said Christina.

The lucky winner also told us about how it was her husband, who had entered the contest on her behalf: “It was my husband, Marshal, who sent in the contest entry in my name. So, when I got the call about having won, I was confused at first! But, then, I remembered his having sent in the entry. I shared the news with my colleagues, who were also happy for me.”

Once again, we’d like to congratulate our 75th Read ‘n’ Win contest winner, Christina, on her win! Hope she enjoys using her new Quantum Wave tablet.
