A century of Donors, Maiden Award and Much More at Kalpavriksha

It is so important to keep moving. When you show courage to move ahead, milestones are created and achieved on the way !

But it was not exactly the #1 tag that made the moment extra special. It was what happened after it, that made the entire experience worth the wait? Or even more than worth?
