    Star of the Decade award!! Here is the Winner

    As you all are aware, we give away special prizes to members who have performed extraordinarily well during the previous year (wait for the announcement). We have several active contributors in ISC and we find it very difficult to handpick a couple of them since many of them do contribute equally well every year.

    While many of our active members remain with us and stay active for many years, we have decided to give a special recognition to one person who has been very consistent and active with us, in different roles, for more than a decade! I am sure many of you can easily guess who it is. I wanted to give some time to you all to share your guess before I announce but considering the fact that it would be almost a cakewalk for most of you who have been closely associated with ISC, I decided otherwise.

    I take this opportunity to acknowledge her contributions in making ISC what it is today. She is a valuable contributor to different sections, she is creative and comes up with ideas that can attract members and keep them glued to this site, she manages and leads our team of editors with elan displaying great qualities of leadership, she is diplomatic where she should be and is stern (even with me!) when she needs to be. She has been with us for more than a decade now and has always been a strong support and motivator to our members in general and the site in particular.

    And the winner of this very special award is none other than Vandana, our favourite Managing Editor. The 'Star of the Decade award' is conferred on her keeping in mind her consistent and dedicated efforts to enrich, maintain and improve this site. This prestigious award comes with cash money of Rs 1,500/- but that is only a very small part of this big recognition to her.

    I request our valuable members to please join me in congratulating the special award winner.

    Congratulations Vandana ma'am on winning this most prestigious of awards in ISC. No one deserves it more than you and as Tony Sir has aptly mentioned, it was an easy guess for each one of us, that it could be none other than you. Ma'am, make the most of this momentous occasion. The New Year has sure begun on a very bright note for you. Hope, some of that brightness also shines upon the rest of us in ISC.
    Patience and perseverance pays

Moreover, another prestigious feather has been added to your crown at the very beginning of 2021.

    This is really a very nice gesture on the part of ISC to honour a contributing member of such a level who has not only immensely contributed in this site but has also kept the team together for the overall objective of this online portal. I have witnessed her endurance and patience in many cases and she is one of the driving forces for many of us here. On this occasion, I congratulate her and also wish more such accolades and awards to her in the coming times.

    Congratulations Madam. I still remember your guidance when I really knew nothing about the tags in articles or URL and so on. Today, I have around 540 articles in around 31 months and shall possibly cross 650 in 2021. I owe this success to your inspiration.

    Hats off to you Madam.

  • #719466
    Wow star of the decade and Vandana truly deserves this award for her endurance, abilities and above all retaining the members through her creative contest threads and thus keeping this site going and still going strong. She has taken the responsibilities from the webmaster and running the site by taking all along the editorial team and also managing the members complaints with more grit and determination. She has proved the lady power and leading the site from the front and this is the greatest recognition showered on her and thanks to our webmasterTony for this great gesture. I also take pride that she is the league of those old members who are giving their immense contributions for the site development and it feels pride that our site has been doing extremely well with new threads, new contests, new discussions and all going smoothly under her able guidance.

    This is a real surprise and a memorable new year gift to the best suitable person in the ISC family. Vandana Ma'am truly deserves this. Whatever she does including contributing, guiding, managing the editor's team, motivating the new members, etc is far more than her actual responsibilities and it depicts her affection and love for the ISC family.

    I am very happy to see Vandana madam receiving the Star of the Decade award and she completely deserves such a prestigious award without any semblance of doubt. Her proficiency in handling the site to reach greater heights year after year, her great capability to handle any issues with great ease, her innovative and creative ideas to keep the portal always active, her administrative skills to keep the whole ISC team flocking together, her proficiency in English and creating exceptional articles of a high standard are the hallmarks that make her special. I congratulate Vandana madam once again and I wish her to achieve many more such awards in the future.

    What a magical way to start the year! Thank you Tony Sir, for this gesture of appreciation. It means a lot to me and I am both humbled and honoured in equal measure to receive this very special Star Award.

    It's not me alone, though, who has "enriched, maintained and improved this site", Sir. Any work is a collaborative venture and ISC is a superb example of it. We have together enriched the site through our contributions; been consistent in doing so, thereby maintaining it and ensuring that it has kept going in a competitive online world; and with timely suggestions have helped towards improving it. There is also excellent teamwork behind the scenes, a mutual understanding and cohesive bond between the editors and between the editors and the admin.

    Just think about it - this ISC family lives in a virtual world and despite not having met (other than a few of us) we share something special. That something is what has established a beautiful fellowship of affection and camaraderie between us, no matter the off-and-on spats that get diffused soon by burying the hatchet (and our egos) and we move on. That fellowship, I like to believe, is strong enough to bring back alumni, some of whom have indeed returned, the affinity-pull gently bringing them back in. It is this affinity which establishes ISC as the real Star of the Decade (more than a decade actually!) May this entity continue to shine under the able administration of our Webmasters and let all of us continue to scatter stardust in the e-world.

    Thank you all, for your beautiful wishes, affection and blessings. Today is a moment to cherish. Let's stick around to celebrate another decade with ISC and do be there, then, alongside me in 2031. Three cheers to ISC!
