(Comment.gif: Hi Monika Tomar, warm welcome to the wikieducator family of educators and learners! feel free to alert me for learning helps. And incidentally, the best practice in WikiEducator is that the user pages shall be with the url having the special page name User: like name after, Any thing directly linked to the root ie will be treated as content/project pages. Therefore would you please copy the content from this page to ...thanks in advance. Regards Anil Prasad 15:27, 22 March 2009 (UTC) please remove this note after reading)
