  3. We have to give our essay typed or handwritten?

  4. thaniganti muni bhaskar

    I did post my essay through korear. Is it necessary to made through speed post?

  5. In the application mode and process,you say some details mentioned and attach with the essay. But in the next line relevant information should be indicated in the covering letter and strictly not in the essay. I get confused. So please give me meaning?

  6. I couldn’t get one thing.
    It has been written in the information that last date for applying to the competition is 31.08.2015 that means we need to fill the entry form and submit it to the written address first and later the main entries will be submitted.
    Is it so?
