Current Affairs 2012: Month (or date) wise events
Hello friends, do anybody have month-wise data of events that have occured during last months of this year and are really important for CE 2013 and other employment tests?
Please share with us what you have got in your note books, copies, registers and in word documents.
We can have them only from current affairs mags & periodicals, and there are so many of them that its tiresome for one person to go through all of them. This is a platform where different people buy and study different periodicals, so if some of them could share their couplets on former subject, we would be having diverse and enough material, and everyone can have easy access to read it over here.
Help yourself by helping others.
