You get to meet people from different [...]Neeraj
The best part of human life is undoubtedly the childhood. To be very precise say the 6-13 year age group is by far the best. I too enjoyed this time of my childhood doing all kind of stuff.

It was the 2nd of June when I was conveyed that decision on our selection was put in the cupborad due to some internal problems.

A few days back I was in Gurgaon. I was very impressed with the straight roads and carefully planned buildings along these roads. Being from a city like Hyderabad where buildings seem to come up almost anywhere and the roads are as curvaceous as the African bananas.
