9th Issue of iww eJournal - September 2012


Welcome to the 9th issue of iww eJournal and also to the new writers who joined us this month. A special welcome to Smt. Nuggehalli Pankajam, a well known writer both in Kannada and English, who has blessed us by joining our team of writers.

iww ejournal is eight months old now and in these eight months we have achieved what we always wanted to achieve – to forge an iron-strong bond with ink. Pen is mightier than sword! True to its worth as the saying goes! But not to forget at the same time that it is also an instrument to bind the able and like minds in an ever growing eclectic partnership. It is not only we writers, but also our readers, whom we have charmed into an everlasting fraternity of thoughts and thinkers. And how proud we are of that!!

Though never expressed in so many words, but iww subscribes to a philosophy of its own. Literary ambitions apart, iww has always been a family e-journal, for those netizens who want to read and share their reading pleasures with their family and friends. Our underlying motto has always, therefore, been clean entertainment in addition to being informative and enriching.

Today, at this juncture, with sincerity we pledge to abide by that kinship and never to stray from its motto of purity of pursuit. Fuelled by creative passion we march ahead to our ninth issue with the hope to have you, our readers, always with us, through thick and thin, inspiring us to make milestones just our travel guides.

Here’s wishing you the very best in reading and writing!
