Farewell: Editor’s Note


Mitali Chakravarty

Kitaab was. Kitaab is and will continue to be.

Meanwhile the corona virus has, perhaps, taught a lesson that mankind all over the world has the same vulnerabilities. Thoughts and ideas need to be nurtured to unite mankind across all borders. Some of us writers have joined together to start a journal which hopes to reach out to mankind across all borders. The journal is in its infancy and needs much nurturing like a baby. It needs all the support possible now.

Kitaab has moved into its mature years. I leave Kitaab in the able hands of a new Editor who will soon be announced by the Founder and Editor- in – Chief, Zafar Anjum.

Before I sign off, I must thank Kitaab for the wonderful new friends it has found me — all the wonderful writers and readers. I must thank Desmond Kon Zhicheng–Mingdé for his unwavering support and friendship. Farah Ghuznavi and Rituparna Mahapatra for guiding me through the rites of passages of Kitaab.org and Zafar Anjum for his trust, continued friendship and the opportunity. Kitaab helped me heal in a lot of ways. I must also thank the editors before me, Sucharita Dutta Asane, Monideepa Sahu and more, who made Kitaab a vibrant platform long before I joined the Kitaab community. Without all these people and each one of you, I could not have led the online journal of Kitaab International for a whole year.

As I bid you all farewell as the editor of Kitaab.org, I hope you will continue supporting the site. It is in all of your hands to build Kitaab.org into an even stronger and more mature journal. I will continue writing for it and I hope you will all do the same.

Aufwiedersehen,

Thank you,

Mitali Chakravarty
