    An exhaustive list made by the FM. GOI had yet to learn how to use direct and brief writings. The couch everything in the baby’s language to escape responsibility, it seems! Instead of directly bowling the ball they always try to make it a swinger. That’s why swingers are on the way side!
    FM should have cut off the chaff and retained the edible portion only. Then the whole document can be reduced to a few meaningful pages.
