Where have we been???

November 13, 2012

Before we begin the question, let us understand where we, the Authors, have been for the past few weeks.

1 author managed to get a 6 month intern in North India, and left the Land of Idly-Sambar and is still held up there.

2 authors managed to work on their basics and are now employed by top-notch companies. Ofcourse, they’re still working on cracking competitive exams currently.

1 author managed to put enough effort into his Dept. Tech. fest and came out just in time for the exams.

1 author is busy with cricket fixtures.

Ofcourse, everyone is busy.

But, Quizzing!Lets get on with it!!
