Juggernaut Love Story Contest Shortlist

 •  3


A big thank you to all of those who participated in the first Juggernaut Love Story Contest! We were simply overwhelmed by the number of responses we got. Our three judges — Faraaz Kazi, Megha Rao and Shriya Garg — went through some brilliant stories. And as difficult as it was to choose the top 10, our judges had to finally make a choice — a round of applause to them! Read the stories for free on the Juggernaut app, starting Monday, 3rd October. If you haven’t already downloaded the app, get it here.
