You are a real ProZian. Jun 22, 2005

Hats off to you dear Bala! You have done a great job for us.I also read the news in newspapers but didn't know the name of the site (lack of full information is common with newspapers).We get many things from the cd but specially we benefited of the standerdised technical hindi of government of India. Thanks again.
