Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I do realize, its kind of a code churn.
I didn't realize it until I looked at the sign you pointed out.
But it was a good exercise to go through the code as this is one of

Sorry, it didn't turn out to be a beneficial one. My bad.
Thanks a lot again for the suggestions and feedback.
