A special note for Shilpa Garg.

Shilpa, as you all know, is a versatile blogger. Every body in the blogging world is aware of her writing skills and  presentation of her blogs . In spite of  her accomplishment, proficiency and excellence in this field, she is very humble and helpful. Whatever I have learnt and achieved today is because of her co operation and helpful nature. She deserves much more. I humbly request her to accept this small offer.
