  1. Google Organised the wordmasters & it was really fantastic to see people gathered from all fields for participating in wordmasters challenge. All were trying to gather their wits we could see some studying on Acronymns, synonyms & some of them referring dictonary in wordmasters pune challenge. It was anice experience as I had travelled 120 kms from Ahmednagar to Pune to participate in the Google Wordmasters Challenge 2006.
    Really a nice experiment by Google through out the country.

  2. It was a fscinating experience. The choice of words left ample space for imagination and expression. I wrote to my heart’s content, while keeping an eye on the watch and word counts as well. literally i was ‘watching’ my words. Looking forward to more of such contests.
    Thanks Google for making this special effort:)

  3. That was really a stress experience.
    Earlier it was of 2hrs,at venue it was reduced to 1 hr. and then finally settled to 45 mins.
    The challenge was to gather 20 bizarre words in this 45 mins. miniature time period.
    And as expected, that was really a hard nut to crack.
