Hey Laxie,
Her name is "Tanvi" which means "a delicate girl" but I want to make her tough enough to face GMAT sometime ;) In fact, when she learnt to pick up things, the first thing she picked up was a pen! :-D

Ha ha ha :lol: Yeah, these uncles, aunties will be away on their ventures but I'll give her all you buddies' contants so that she can keep disturbing you all!

"Interval between" is a correct usage but it seems to me that we need "interval between X and Y" . ^ B ^ sounds more accurate to me here. A very confusing question :?
