Well, I guess I am to be blamed for carelessness.
I wrote a piece on farmer Wong and his achievement which was published a coupla days ago.
The story was fine, but there were some blaring mistakes.
The abbreviation given for Good Agricultural Practise was GAP.
But I maintained it as GPA throughout the whole passage.
Only the last mention was correct.
I may have typed GPA but the mind registered it as 'GAP'.
Shit happens. And this time, its right on my face...
Moral of the story: check, double check and check again before sending in the story..
