@Yo_Yo_Choti_Singh  ??you are a gem. 

I too feel forum ke wo din wapas aane chaiye.... :) 
@Neyawn ek accha push dijiye... 


I am all for it guys. 

Rahi baat Yo_Yo_Sir ki, I want to clarify three-four things here.

#1 I never tried to use forum name, or my own to link it to any programs of forum, at least in the early days of forum - even when we started academy. Only about last year or so, I made concious disclosure about it. That is because we wanted to grow slowly.

#2 forum lost the charm not because of commercialisation BY ForumIAS, but because of commercialisation ON forumias,(  i very secretly launched the programs of forum academy, which people in forum didnt even know about.) most of forum was full of advertisments and spamming by so many people ( which you can see on telegram now - all groups are full of spam, nothing else ) most people migrated to different websites much earlier, and this place was reduced to bakar. If i tried to push for mobile verification, people would make too much noise with too many profiles.


#2.5 personally i like building things from zero, so when migration happened to TG, i did nothing because if TG was a better solution, let people move to it. I decided to focus on the academy for a few years. also because of so many websites there was a flood of study material, which in the early days was created by a culture of co-operation and self help. 

#3 we assumed that most people will understand that it is a good decision to keep academy and community separate. but people didnt think that way. they wanted support and discussion for academy here itself. it took us a long time to figure that if we dont allow such discussions here ( which in fact help promote the academy ), people develop more mistrust .@Zohanmukharjee  and a few other people convinced me that there is no harm in having these discussions here.

#4 lastly, today, if we had not worked on the academy at the right time, we would not have had so many people from the "forumias ecosystem". Today, we can proudly say though the community has most people in the civils selected list, and the academy contributed to more than half the people who are from "forumias". i can see that right from yo yo , iwra jyoti , haze - all these people are also from the academy , and a lot of people were not so much from the community as they were from the academy. 

#5 now that we see that TG is another distraction and not really meaningful ( as  i had thought earlier), i will be focusing on this platform itself, and will keep it in a good condition with quality moderation and better conversations.

Thanks! This means a lot. I left the forum way back sometime in 2016-2017 completely frustrated by the overall negativity. It has taken Herculean efforts t start afresh . Have never taken an easy route.

Astride of a grave and  a difficult birth,

Down in the hole, lingeringly, the grave digger puts on the forceps.

We have time to grow old.

The air is full of our cries.

But habit is a great deadener.

At me too someone is looking, of me too someone is saying, He is sleeping, he knows nothing.

Let him sleep on.

"Time present and time past

Are both perhaps present in time future,

And time future contained in time past.

If all time is eternally present

All time is unredeemable.

What might have been is an abstraction

Remaining a perpetual possibility

Only in a world of speculation.

What might have been and what has been

Point to one end, which is always present.

Footfalls echo in the memory

Down the passage which we did not take

Towards the door we never opened

Into the rose-garden. My words echo

Thus, in your mind.

But to what purpose

Disturbing the dust on a bowl of rose-leaves

I do not know.

Other echoes

Inhabit the garden. Shall we follow?"
