As the DT 2014 is declared, let me present UDT 2014. The Spirit of "Never say die attitude" is oozing out of UDT 2014 and I am sure every one of them will do justice to their talent.

Now the thread is all yours and I hope every body will be active and discuss and achieve for 100%tile, 99.9X%tile is not good enough !!

All the best.

Whoever couldn't make through, I know you guys have loads of talent and you don't believe in giving up, but I can select only 15 team members. I will expect you puys and pirls to be part of the discussion and benefit from the thread.
