Umm!!! Finally our baby completes one year.Group hug Loungers....I just feel bad for the fact that Asbah isn't here with us to celebrate this event.I am damn sure she is watching her baby from somewhere..Yippie!!! Happy bithday Writers Lounge and congragulations to all members without whom this place would be nowhere. This place contains immense talents and each one of us is bonded with this place. Our association with the writers lounge is so strong that despite of certain disturbances we regularly visit and post here.For time and again I've always been saying that Lounge is like your mother and leaving the Lounge is like leaving your own mother.Infact it was Asbah and Sandeep who told me this.I realize my faithfullness towards our Lounge and I am happy for the same.I have many memorable events associated with this place starting from the day1 itself.
It was on the same day last year that we created this.If it wasn't Asbah's idea,my work and Sandeeps involvement and Loungers support Writers Lounge would be dead. I've learnt a lot from this place.I have met many new people here, made many friends.I have seen teachers in from of Tan dada, Sandeep and Prats.I've met my alter ego in Kajal,Asbah,Aarthi, Mehreen etc.I have my siblings here Priyanka and Insiya. This place has seen talented people in form of Nabs,Arunkumar,Rosh,Sonshu,Leo,Riversouls,Shweta,Arv,Anurag,Hina,Rashi,
Akansha,Pulkit ,Nush sister,Abhri,Ilashree,Disha,Hashan and many . I have my partner in crime Arjun,Freelancer,Hashan and many more..I have met mysterious Vitruvian boy and Innovative Niks.I have seen the likes of StepMAN and Sandeep Malans.Talents like Neha ,Mona,Vasudha ,Divisha and many are a part of this family.How would I forget Chirag,the poet and Poshin.I wish to thank Raghav and Bharghav for their enormous contribution to this Lounge in forms of movie quizzes and reviews. Thanks a lot for the chain posts,the innovative poetry lessons and everything.Asbah and Sandeep,if it was not you guys then it would have been impossible. I still remember the difficulties we faces during the initial phases when we created this place.
As rome was not build in a day ,it took a subsequent amount of time and we executed it step by step.Our first contest had just 2 participants. I am aware of how Sandeep was disappointed with the feedback for the first contest.It was then we decided that second contest won't be that soon.One fine day in December,I read a post related to contest.It was the 'rain drenched lounge'contest post declarataion.It was raining in Pakistan and the same day Id was celebrated. I remember Tan da joined us from that day! haina Bhai??.It was grand and was beyond expectations.Over 25 participants and 50+ posts.It was amazing. Later on many more people joined us like Kajal,Shweta,John,More Orangee.It was a perfect fete.Then it was followed by Inspiration contest, Microhumour and Bharghavs Caption contest.I remember entry of StepMAN ,the promotions and everything related to the same.How could one forget the late night group chats on gtalk consisting of Lounge members.
Everytime we loved being here,as this place is special.Later on few disturbances in form of some gang harassing our lounge member and other things actually made this place something it wasn't.Activity dipped beyond imaginations,people started leaving,Admins busy and other such things.I just wish to thank you guys for whatever you all have done. Love each and every one of you for being an integral part of this lounge.Yes We read,We write and We lounge for sure.Lets celebrate this occasion.Yes,Asbah is watching,Kajal is somewhere witnessing this event,Priyanka is here and Insi is here as well .Get in guys.I just want this place to be remembered as a place where talented people lived together with unity..We will be here forever and ever..Thanks a lot.Member of Month for May and June Hashan and Arun can accept their badge.
And lastly,thanks a lot for making this place beautiful.
