Very, very good. These surprise meetings hold the key and balance to proper functioning of the organization, any for that matter of fact. The citizens want law and order, economic system, administration of justice and no terrorists, whatever their caste, color, creed or cult. These four requirements hold the balance for the state to function. Salams
