Results of the Indian Kukai #14/COFFEE


Monday, December 07, 2015


We conclude another edition of the Indian Kukai today, our fourteenth. November/December has been a torrid period so far, and we, along with the world, have had a few bumps along the way. For this edition, we aren’t withholding results of those who haven’t sent their votes.

93 participants graced our 14th Kukai, and they came from 26 different countries. The voting was quite close throughout and is reflected in our results as we have a 4-way tie for 4th place, and just 3 points separating 2nd to 5th place.

Our winner is Shrikaanth Krishnamurthy from Birmingham, England.

Vidya S Venkatramani from Chennai, India takes the runner-up slot, and Capotă Daniela Lăcrămioara from Galaţi, Romania takes third place.

The 4-way tie for 4th place is between Paresh Tiwari (Mumbai, India), Pepa Odjakova (Plovdiv, Bulgaria), Alexey Andreev (Moscow, Russia) and F. Florian (Botosani, Romania).

Ana Drobot of Bucharest makes it three from Romania in our top 5.

Congratulations to all of them, and to each of you who participated as well.
