Dear Chakkaravathy,

Security and safety are 'peas of a pod'-they compliment each other?? Secondly it would have been better if you could have advised Mathu as to the forum for posting this post!!
I was given to understand that sarcasm was never an essence of Citehr??

Mathu-Please read the Act its very clean and clear.
