We are overwhelmed by the response and the interest that our contributors have shown in our site. This has further strengthened our belief about the requirement of a platform for all individuals to express themselves and share their opinion and views. At times, we have found our present format wanting in terms of being true to our promise to provide a platform to all.

The C Log is a space where articles, personal pieces, brief write-ups will all go unedited.
