A granny became so obsessed with winning radio quizzes that she created aliases just so that she could enter multiple times. The woman set up a counterfeiting office in her house, forging documents to supplement her false identities. She has been fined and banned from entering any more competitions.


And finally... a lawyer appears to have filled his head with so many precedents he can't even remember his own birthday. If you know "Thiru" and think you can help him out use the button below to tell us.

Dear All,


I am very sorry! I was not born on 27th Feb. 1947 as indicated on my school records.


Hence, It is not my actual birth day. I do not know when I was born.


Pl. ignore the (Group Admin)'s communication.
