Hey Hey Satpal,
Initially I also thought that it would not be fair to upload it and than distribute the material.But,at the EOD,all of us try to use material which is not original....

How many times,have you seen that people(even educated and rich) buying duplicate material on the roadside.I think I am better in that sense,since I am contributing anything to that community...but yes,I feel fine to share this book with other people who read such kind of books :)

May be you can also share this book with some of your other LIKE MINDED friends...
