Reminiscences about Forum section of ISCI joined India Study Channel (ISC) on 23rd September 2015. Since the very beginning, I was attracted by the Forum section due to its liveliness, vivacity, knowledgeable discussion on various different topics, colourful stories posted by different members. There were some great members whose posts attracted immediate attention from all.
After a long hiatus, I have returned to ISC in the month of March 2022. I notice a a 'terrible' change in this section. A very colourful member has departed forever. Many other members whose posts I used to read with great interest no longer write on this platform.
Nowadays I see posts mainly against the central government, on petrol/diesel price rise, on moral issues like 'we should do this or we should not do this' or elaborating well-known adage/proverb, Members no longer write different types of posts or posts containing interesting stories/riddles.
I am sorry to say Forum section has lost its old charm. But what is the reason behind it? Is it pandemic which has affected the members?
Or, is excessive trimming the reason behind the colourful plant losing its colour?
