Grown by a dozen
A dozen years ago, a dream turned real
It took the form of print, and the paper so surreal!
The Asian scenario fantastic
All captured in the pages artistic!
From guidance to news coverage
Stating facts and fun at its young age!
The readers had to be attracted
All age groups had to be targeted!
It reached public places in bundles
From where good folks collected!
Be it the Gurudwara and the Mandir
The latest copies were delivered!
Recyclable and reusable its paper quality
Giving it a brand name environment friendly!
And then the interest grew in swings
And the baby learnt to spread wings!
