Shri Sadasivam. Sridharan ji :

Thank you very much for the nice words.

Shri Kunjuppu ji:

Thank you very much for a very patient listing. This way 'the easy ways to keep smiling' have become doubled and it is more easy to effect now. The Nos. may keep on increasing also! Passing advice to others is the easiest Indian way among all! Of course, I think this was proved by me first. Thanks lot again.
