      • Hey Manibhushan, We did update the Hindu vocab for the months of Jan & Feb but unfortunately because of some technical issue, those got deleted. But you can download the Free PDFs of Hindu Vocab of last year and keep updating your word power.
        Regards,

    • Namaste Nikunj jii..
      You are providing every day vocabulary from The Hindu editorial which is really a great boon to the competitive aspirants like me…
      But, one thing I just want to tell you that please provide that editorial also, to make us understand the meaning of the context. please take this into consideration!!
      Thank you!!
