Can I not sing a song

In appreciation for ‘Melange’?

My journey started

With the magnificent magazine –

The issue on every Sunday,

On one fine day,

When I picked up the weekly,

Browsed the pages that

My eyes fell upon,

Read quite a few features,

Admired the beautiful compositions,

Usage of English language

And began to learn…

Facts about our motherland –

Culture, communities, civilization,

Little things about little ones,

Informative titbits, counselling tips,

Contributions of illustrious personalities,

Significance of festive proceedings.

My experience…’twas truly inspiring.

So, can I not sing a song

In praise of ‘Melange’?
