(Rangakuvara (talk) 03:36, 14 January 2016 (UTC)) Sir, I'm not very happy about the uploading of pictures taken on our own efforts, but they are removed from my article. I will explain when I attend the function. I feel the rules especially for India should be relaxed; because our way of living and thinking about privacy slightly differs. I known what I mean. thanks. I do not know, 16th is the day of our program, and still the timings are not notified. Why ?
