Confusious

"...By three methods we may learn how to make money in the stock market: First, by reflection, which is the hardest; Second, by imitation, which is the easiest; and third by experience, which is the costliest.."

It was tough to choose between MA Tamil and English. After some head scratching i have decided to go with English Lit. My Tamil is in terrible shape (after 10 years of intermittent usage) and is not upto the standards of post graduate curriculum. Moreover only Periyar university offers MA Tamil to anyone with a bachelor's degree. All other Distance education programs insist on a bachelor's degree with Tamil as a subject. And they are not flexible with choice of examination centers. So i had to go with the safer option.

So, Tamilukku get out ...English ku cutout
