લખો અઢળક લખો પણ જરા વિચારીને મારા સહ-સંપાદક કંદર્પ પટેલે આમતો તેમના બ્લોગમાં માતૃભારતી પર પોતાના કન્ટેન્ટ લખતા અને પ્રકાશિત કરતા લેખક મિત્રો અને સખીઓને આપવા જેવી તમામ સલાહ આપી દીધી છે એટલે મારે તેમાં કોઈ વધારો કરવો નથી, અને એની શક્યતા પણ કંદર્પભાઈએ છોડી નથી. પણ હું કેટલીક મૈત્રીપૂર્ણ વાતો જરૂર કરીશ જેનાથી મારા માતૃભારતીના સહ લેખકો અને સહ લેખિકાઓને કદાચ તેમના લખાણને વધારે ખીલવવામાં મદદ થશે. ગુજરાતી ભાષા જો યુવાનો વાંચશે તો એ સદાકાળ યુવાન રહેશે. યુવાનોની માનસિક
