The Forum itself has undergone a transformtion in the past one year or so, the latest being the change in format that has killed the accessibility factor that was central to healthy functioning of the Forum. I think (my personal opinion) a lot many have lost the old enthusiasm and interest in the Forum and are around only to keep the presence alive without wanting to abandon this place. You would have noticed that, this process has been coming, albeit slowly but all the time one could sense it. If you would let me express it my way, like a Bear drought in the stock market, that once it has reached that level it tends to hover around that plateau for a long time, before making a slow but determined effort to come out of the dump and raise to its full glory. I think, we are right now going through this phase.

There is no doubt, every day new members are joining it by the scores but normally one's interaction more or less remains confined to whom we have known here for a long time or ...more

From among the list, only cocktail raj is missing.....others are still quite active......., but, at the same time, i would like to say that ....there are many others too who had been asking and still do ask many beautiful and interesting qns , rather, better than theirs........., so, pointing out a few of them will not be fair and just.............

Thanks for remembering us Manish ji. Yeh toe chalta hei. Because due to one question there is no award is going to miss to anyone. Yes...i too miss the hot debates, funny questions and serious discussions. But you know manish ji, now a days peoples tolerance power is vanishing. They know how to protest than adjust. People sense of humor is decreasing day by day. May be change of time and age. :))

I sure do remember them especially the ones asked by Cocktail Raj. And the comments and endless arguments! But it was like a coffee house adda on CR's page and there was no bad blood.Serious accusations were never made at anybody. After the debates ended all parted ways amicably only to begin afresh another day!!!

The changes we find are something too much
serious questions and debating comments are no more
we are finding new entrants who can use any word any time
