Mediawiki Newsletter in Kannada...

Greetings from me and my family, Getting your contact was not an easy task because since I am not computer literate, I ordered my son to seek a partner very far away and he went to the institute of International Business to apply and he paid them the charges. After two days we were given three names and I did not write the three but merely close my eyes in prayers and your address became my
