JAYA JAYA SHRI KRUSHNA!
I used to write comments on Hindupad for the benifit of spiritualism. Recently it came to notice that Naveen is adopting ghost-writing. I can not approve this practice. Hence no more comments. HARI BOL!July 13, 2013 at 6:40 pm #1023348
Om Doosri Radhaji,
There are number of contributors for Hindupad.com… Every post written by the contributor is published under the contributor’s name. Atleast I give credit to him.. There is no issue of ghost writing as anybody can contribute for Hindupad..
