I didn't see any thread dedicated to this, so I thought of making one. I apologize in advance if someone has already made a thread related to this.
Wow can you beleive its been 8 years that this beautiful site came into our life? A site that merely started out as a blog and look where it has reached by now! India Forums has become more a a family to the members that use it. It isn't just any kind of forum where people come, browse, and post from time to time. It is much much much more than that. It has become a family for many members. There has been so much bonding and attachment between the members of this forum. It is like a second home. IF has been addictive for many of us. We must visit it at least once a day. Every time it is down, we all can't live without it. Don't deny it!
We have one person to thank from the bottom of our hearts for making India Forums such a huge success. Vijay ji, us members have absolutely NO words for the wonders you have made to this forum. It started out merely as a blog, but look at how it has enhanced in these 8 years. So much has changed and for the better. Our member count itself tells us how much of a HUGE success this forum is. And Vijay ji we have so much to thank to you for bringing this 2nd family of ours. Thank you for all your hard work, dedication, and commitment for what you've done.
Priya ji, we haven't interacted much on occasion but we have to thank you as well for all that you've done for this forum as an admin. Without you or Vijay ji these 8 years of IF wouldn't have been a success. We owe it to you and Vijay ji.
Then we also have the ENTIRE India Forum Development team from the Channel Moderator to a Coolbie (every single DT position) for their hard work in keeping the forum clean and running efficiently. We have such a large group of DT members and they ALL should be thanked. People come here because of the hard work that is put in to make this a better forum.
I know that India Forums will continue to keep growing by the year. Today it celebrates its 8th birthday. Before we know it it will be celebrating its 100th birthday. (I hope I'm still alive to witness that). But either way IF has been an incredible journey for me. I am an IF addict and I am very proud to be one. Thank you Vijay ji and Priya ji for the wonderful experience and journey through IF. I am very grateful. I have made many good friends through this forum and hope to continue doing so!
Happy birthday, India Forums!
