  1. Hi
    I am from telugu background. so can i choose paper 1 as telugu instead of hindi?..and i am settled in karnataka but i dont know kannada much well,so is there any problem to work in kannada schools if i take the exam (paper 1) in telugu?

  2. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  3. When I originally left a comment I appear tohave clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now eachtime a comment is added I get four emails with the exact samecomment. There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?Kudos!
