Dear Dr. Subramanian,

Thank you for your compliments on my thoughts on conceptual design and commercial awareness in my reply to a query by Er. Suprabhat.

Your suggestion of having a 'Like' button, as in Face book, in SEFI's discussion forum is a nice and novel one, as many Sefians view the postings but may not have time to make a detail comment on it, and this 'Like' buton would certainly help them to express their views on it in a short manner.  I hope SEFI Admin will take note of your suggestion and incorporate it in due course.

With best wishes,

N. Prabhakar

IN GOD WE TRUSTPARDON,PROTECT & HELP US LORD, GOD GIVE US THE WISDOM TO UNDERSTAND YOUR WAY OF CREATION WHICH WE CALL SCIENCE,TO BE EXPERT NEEDS PRACTICE & SELF IMPROVEMENT, LETS PRAY FOR ALL THOSE WHO ARE SICK FOR EARLY RECOVERY & IN DISTRESS,HELP SOME ONE IN POVERTY LEVELDear Dr. Subramanian :

Your opinion has triggered great ideas for safe structural design.
In my opinion this is a guide line, and a basic standard code of practice for structural engineers- senior or junior or
administration.

With best wishes and regards.
