    There was tons of packaging material, which took a while to open. It's clear the Indian Customs didn't even scratch it (maybe just a few scans of x-ray and MTD). Inside, there was this red+ivory box made of wood and paperboard. Inside, there's a satin cloth holding a silk-red cover:

    On opening the cover is the the certificate I has hoping to receive. Since it was rolled, I couldn't get it flat. Some really hq paper which resembles texture of currency notes was used in making it, with gold-polished letters saying "Certificate of Honour", with my name (it's Balaraju Tarun Rajeev Raju, but they took my middle and last names to print. no probs):

    So there it is. There was lot of wishful thinking on what could come, but I have to understand that public commendations are valued there.

    Thanks sir. There was an Sino-Indian debate on the topic of "Are India and China competitors or partners?", held on Global Times' forum.

    And just to clarify, AV's post is the OP. The above two posts were part of a private thread (open to DFI Stars and moderators), they were spun off into a new public thread. Older posts appear first. So it's not like I'm congratulating myself :D
