Yesterday I went to a shop for taking a print out of my data ,that time one of the person came over their and started quarreling with shop keeper !!! I didn’t know why they were quarreling,but after hearing their discussion I realized that,that person took some printouts of his matter,which was written in MARATHI (Regional language). So due to absence of corresponding font he got all the things in printout as unreadable format like this ”  “,For that he was blaming with shop-keeper.That matter ends very quickly as shopkeeper accept his fault 🙂
