A Word from the Author:
I am sure there are lot of people who hate Google, but with a little respect on what they have achieved. I am not a big fan of them on some occasions but I really enjoy some of their services like Google Analytics, GMail etc. Of course I should not offend Google Search, since part of my money I earn with that. Many Many Happy Returns of the Day Google!
