casualities after reading my poems,as part of clues.

Session was good…were even able to hijack partha da from CW.he

packed him off;)
Dr.Faiyaz discussed a whole lot of technical and practical issues.
What i learnt was that environment and economics cannot be separate.
we need to think from both these point of views.also we can try to
manipulate data of staitistics to make our point clearer to
unknoweldgeable ppl.

He tried doing so to stop ppl of a village from killing the gecko
lizrds found in the surroundings.he said that this creature ate the
germs of TB.and since this one animal was killed,there would be
pandemic in the village soon…point made,whatever might be the way.
