He further added that there are many young writers around us whose writing space is shrinking but we made a home for their writing printed. Along with the elders, young writers have found importance in our pages. Through this effort, we have given birth to numerous new buds. In the coming days, they will continue to spread the aroma and beauty, we are sure. And It is our responsibility to take care of these bugs and to give birth to more new bugs in advance of the anniversary. That is how we are trying to turn the weekly into a common platform for young and old writers. However, to rebuild the new ones, we are trying to free readers from the monotony of repetitions of monotonous writings. Gradually, it will become clear, visible.
