    After posting the comment on August 20 2009. I have not checked the other comments posted by other people. Today when I am revising the old posts got to see the comments of Ronak.

    I request you not to be dicoraged with words of people like Ronak. By his words I understand that he stands for nothing. I am a regular reader of gktoday and improved a lot. It had really helped me a lot. May god bless u Sir, for the work which you are doing.
