    Who in the world would allow a 20 year old to cut branches who don't even know what is good conductor and bad conductor of electricity. All mobile and whatsapp graduates. Why don't they use the useless sanghis for all these work?

    @ RK, Mangalore Surathkal, We all know who supported Afghanis and gave them military support and weapons who went gate crashing Nawaz Sharif's grand daughters wedding in Pakistan. This is called 'Doghlapan'. Ask your cheddis why Afghan is so dear to them and why drugs from Afghanistan makes it to the ports of Gujarat in tonnes. A million dollar question. Well, That question is beyond your limit to ponder. Grow up!
