    This is a newly designed theme and does not have anything to do with tech crunch. One more point i would like to add here is. it takes too much time to load. Some more modification is required if you want to use this theme in your working web-site or blog. ( my checking tool is : )

    if you think i am wrong in anywhere, kindly correct me.
