I figured out - thanks. Please ignore !
**In the below code: if I leave original = raw_input, it shows an error and doesn't take the count of the input. And if I put raw_input as string then it is fixed. So I am forced to write original=raw_input("Enter a word:) which asks for the input twice.**** Please tell what I am doing wrong?
raw_input("Enter a word:")
original = raw_input
Replace this line with your code.
