Vocab Check !


An action -packed mail from one of my friends Ankur Gupta, made me a complete net-ad for the day..

He sent me this interesting link..
http://freerice.com/

A wonderful way to do a social service and at the same time benefiting to the under privileged..!
And above all it works as a vocab check too..
Unleash the fun with words and do let me know your scores ..
For me, it hovered around 19-27...
So,all you Reader's Digest vocab section "Points to Ponder" fanatics..
Here is another challenge for you..
Lets see how much you donate!

And you know, what is the best part..
With every correct answer, you donate 10 grains of rice..
I just donated 1120 grains of rice...isnt it cool..

Wish you oodles of good luck..

Kudos to the master mind behind this brilliant idea...
And many thanks to Ankur for sharing this link with all the "word" aficionados around the world who keep a desire to help the needy without spending much of their time..

And yah ..dont forget to share your scores..

And you know what is the best part..after you cross 8000 mark, with every correct word you start donating 20 instead of 10 grains!!
