The year 2020 hasn’t been the best year for most of us. But, KolkataFusion was the silver lining in our lives. When everything has started falling apart, it gave us the hope to survive – your support gave us the strength to be where we are today!
We launched our website, have started investing time, and brain in SEO, exploring new ways to make our digital presence felt and trying our hands-on photos and video editing. Moreover, we also got the support of two new members and it’s not just a dream of 2 school friends anymore. Amidst all the problems the Pandemic has brought along, we kept finding and devoting time for our dear child – our website. And why? This is because YOU ARE THERE!
KolkataFusion is incomplete without you readers and your support in our journey. Even when we were lost and down, you messaged us suggestions and edits that caught your eyes. You let us know you are waiting for us and though we weren’t writing, your trust in us was unmoved. For you, for all of you, we have decided to look back and list down a few posts that you enjoyed reading the most, the posts through which you kept our spirits high. Hope you enjoy reading them once more!
