A babe in a cradle you were
But soon you grew
Flourishing with beautiful
Photos, articles, poems to name just a few
Pouring in from far and near
You provided a much needed platform to the
Upcoming, budding poets, photographers
A big train you became
For all who desired to traverse with you
Your station soon was a manifestation of-
Various fresh pure thoughts and ideas put forth
So very different from one another yet
Beaded in the same string!
How delightful it is
To have your very own place of recognition
Enhancing the enthusiasm of creativity!
The fact that your work is posted for others too
Is a thrilling experience!
So thank you very much ‘Indian Periodical’
A great stage you are for us.
With your hundredth issue
A milestone you have achieved
Though your journey has just begun
With a bang you shall soon climb
Great heights of success!
Team work in true spirit made it all happen
So congratulations to all of you
Especially to you, dear Editor
The backbone and pillar of the periodical!
