I can­not be­lieve that it has been years al­ready that we launched Ci­tadel. I still re­mem­ber sit­ting with car­pen­ters late at night, get­ting the wooden par­ti­tions fit­ted, with the row of desks on the other side and a con­fer­ence room, as well. Never in my wildest dreams did I imag­ine that Ci­tadel would cap­ture the minds and hearts of the Punekars at this level! We’ve been blessed to have bril­liant Ed­i­tors right from the very be­gin­ning, from Su­nanda Me­hta, to Farida Mas­ter, Ashv­ina Vakil, Kavita Kane, Ra­jesh­wari Ra­jimwale, and Sapna Sar­fare, who is now the Deputy Editor, So­ci­ety; and of course, our present day Editor, Ke­taki Latkar. Back­ing them through their jour­ney is Proneeta Hira, who works in the back­ground Tui­etly and pa­tiently, with great per­se­ver­ance and ded­i­ca­tion to make each is­sue a bo­nanza for the read­ers. he jewel in the crown is the Ci­tadel E trav­a­ganza, which has been get­ting big­ger and bet­ter ev­ery year. his year, along with the help of Ashok Dhamankar and Shiven­dra Par­i­har, right from the au­di­tions, to the Press Con­fer­ence, to the ac­tual big day of the fi­nale, ev­ery­thing was won­der­fully un­der­taken. Not to for­get Vi­nay Aranha, who pre­sented the event; and Shee­tal Biyani, who pow­ered the show; and Ke­taki, who gave e cel­lent open­ing re­marks at the Ci­tadel E trav­a­ganza . While thank­ing the en­tire team of Ci­tadel, in­clud­ing Su­dar­shan Iyen­gar and Su­nitta Ra­man, I have saved the best for the end for Den­nis Aranha and Ashok Raut, who are the two rocks who have been with us for all these years. I salute all of them.
