Thanks Hassan.

The bottom line is the value for 'id' needs to come from somewhere.
Your choices are:

1) Embed it in the URL for GET requests, either via query string or
     as path info  (e.g. /story/data/17 ) and handle the security aspect
     (if any) yourself

Kiran : I think this is what I am presently doing.

Form will not work as data is dynamic and form I feel will not serve the

Yup I agree, session is ruled out.I just dont have that much patience to 
figure the things out if I get some nasty behavior.I just dont have that 
level of skill nor time.
The way I have done this is ok for me, it serves my purpose and also I 
dont have the data which is kind of private.Its just that I was 
exploring if we can hide the id.
