    kuch log ki consistency dekh kar lagta h ki woh bas forum par target type karne m hi consistent h.. i may be wrong.. but going like this continuously for last 50 days make me feel ki daal m kuch kaala h.. ya toh khud ko jhooti tassali dete h ya fir doosru ko depress karte h.
  • nhi m preshan nhi bhai.. neither i get depressed.. bahot duniya dekhi h.. so only suspicion.. true that taiyari is relative..
  • bhai bahot time nhi h.. iss galat fehmi m 50 din waste ho gye.. sufficient h par bahot nhi
