Jetpack is one of my favorite “corners” of any WordPress-powered website. A plugin developed by Automattic, Jetpack is a power tool that can help you design, maintain, and grow your website.

An Open letter to Sharmila Farooqui and Irresponsible Media (via Mystified Justice)

Out of courtesy[I was way too sleepy and she was too disturbing at that time, bleh] I too asked about her job, responses she gets and the bus environment. My first question came out bit hurting [that I realized later], when I asked ‘aapki job Read the rest of this entry
