inally 2012 is here and we are already halfway through the first quarter of the year! I deeply apologize to our dear readers and sponsors at the tardy arrival of the year’s first issue - We are planning some major changes to the magazine in the months to come! Here’s hoping this year we will all consciously strive to make our lives far better, richer and effective in terms of experiences, friendships and travel. In this issue our writers have put together an exciting travel guide on THE places to go this year, including one of my personal faves of all time - Curacao! If you are confused on where to take your family or your better half for Easters, read through pages 10-13 for inspiration and contact your travel agent pronto for the best packages! And when you do travel, you will most likely do some shopping too. If you feel that you have worked really hard last year and deserve a treat, check out any of the cool new gadgets we discovered for you on page 42! Women’s International Day is coming up on March 8,2012, and we thought, what better way to celebrate than for Beyond Sindh Magazine to profile some of the trendiest women on the Sindhi scene these days? First we introduce you to Nisha Shivdasani, ZEE TV actress by day and devotional singer by night. Nisha is an amazing woman filled with strength and ambition, and what makes her stand out is the love and gratitude that she holds within for God in her life. As a mother of a 19-year-old and a 23-year-old and as a wife of 25 years, she hasn’t forgotten that at the end of the day, it is her own dreams that she mustn’t neglect. There are more inspiring stories of young girls who grew up with fantasies of seeing their names (or their companies) on fashion labels bought by women across the world. They used to go to their fathers’ factories and dream of making their own lines someday. These young girls have evolved into creative women who work hard and learn by trial and error, who accept criticism from the people they value most for the mistakes they have made, who find happiness in the smallest of things like a customer’s approval, who have value for their relationships because their hearts are content... And if they could do it, you could too. Read through pages 15 to 27 and discover how they did it. On an opposite note, there are some women in our society who are unfortunately victims of domestic abuse, women who married for love yet are constantly belittled daily. Stand up for yourself - If you don’t respect yourself, then how can you expect someone else to? To read about the darker side, check out the stories on page 30 and 60 and let us know what you think!

“We hope Beyond Sindh continues to highlight such people from all over.” Dear Editor,

Dear Editor

I was very excited to open magazine and read. Lots of interesting articles throughout, from the story on Shekhar Hemnani to Aanchal Wadhwani. Makes me proud to know such youngsters are ambitions and determined to make a mark. We hope Beyond Sindh continues to highlight such people from all over. May I have a suggestion? Perhaps one or two articles in every issue covering charities or what youngsters are doing to help will be also very interesting. In the meantime, keep doing good work. Jai Jhulelal!

A thought kept coming in my mind since a few days and thought of sharing with you. Have you ever thought of writing a book, I mean, you have given all of us such an entertaining magazine like Beyond Sindh, but now something more than the Beyond Sindh. You are smart and talented, and with the combination of Dina Sabnani, I’m sure it would be a sold out book! If Chandru Bhojwani can, you can too, think about it. Regards, R.H, USA

Blessings Nari Khemchandani Dear Team, Dear Rachana, I received a copy of your latest Beyond Sindh Magazine and would like to thank you so much for a wonderful & systematic coverage given to our daughter Aanchal & her three winning events.

I”m loving the magazines- they get better and better. Keep doing your best work and I hope maybe there will be online versions available so we can read on our ipads as we wait for the print editions. Maybe this would be a good idea.

Warm Regards & Happy Diwali to you and your great team.

Princess

Her name is Nisha Shivdasani, previously known as Bella Chandiramani, daughter of Late Mr. Naraindas and Mrs. Drupati Chandiramani. Hailing from Ivory Coast where she spoke French and lived amongst the people of cornrows, Nisha settled in Pune, India, three years ago with her husband of 25 years and her grown children. She commutes every so often to the City of Dreams, Mumbai, for her work. Nisha is living out one of her dreams by working as a Zee TV Soap actress with a heartfelt penchant for spiritual singing. Every year during every major celebration, you can find Nisha at the front row of Dada Vaswani’s populous programs in addition to shows in and around Pune. Beyond Sindh Magazine catches up with Nisha in a cozy Café Day coffeeshop in Pune, India…

Was the move to India difficult from Ivory Coast?

How did you venture into the field of soap opera acting?

LAYKH A E S H I S H

M N A N I

“As the little black dress is forever, I similarly aim to provide my customers with affordable handbag ranges that are indicative of style, quality and timeless perfection,” says Hong Kong based designer Kashish Hemnani. Launched in 2009, the handbag brand Laykh’s broad appeal is achieved by keeping designs classic and modish by forgoing any extensive statement-making hardware or detailing that would upstage the spectacular skins or date the piece. Python, ostrich, stingray & Caiman crocodile skins are treated in Italy, France, and Singapore - and are then handmade in Hong Kong to craft Laykh’s chic collections of handbags. Always contemporary yet inspired by classical elements, creator Kashish Hemnani aims to convey strength and celebrate natural beauty through her designs. Rachana Mirpuri talks to Kashish Hemnani about the creation process behind her handbags, the challenges she faced and her most priceless item of fashion… Who do you design for?

-%60 A big city girl at heart, Natasha Madan nee Shamdasani was born in Taiwan and moved to Hong Kong at a tender age of four. She went to school in Hong Kong, learned web design in Bangalore and finally lived the dream of doing art school in New York. Natasha is now currently settled in Charleston, South Carolina with her husband and child. Natasha’s experiences as she globetrotted throughout New York, Seoul, Hong Kong, Hawaii, Bangkok, Krabi, Bali, Chicago and Charleston has resulted in the conception of an exclusive handbag collection richly influenced by said destinations - Taashki. According to her, Taashki is not just a handbag line. It’s a journey. And they would love for you to come on that journey with them Beyond Sindh Magazine interviews Natasha on the story behind her brand, the process of creating an exclusive handbag, and the challenges she faced…

When Reshma Chulani was in high school, she used to take advantage of her family’s successful garment factory and would sporadically ask one of the in-house tailors to make designs that she had in mind. Along with a fondness for Audrey Hepburn, Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfield and Vera Wang, her inspiration stemmed from random objects and materials observed in her daily environment. As she continued to do this throughout college, her friends began to notice and would request her to reproduce for them which she was more than happy to. Although she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and promptly entered the teaching profession as a preschool teacher, Reshma always knew she wanted to get into design - it was all just a matter of planning it out and making it happen. Trousseau by Reshma, a bag and accessory line, was successfully launched in the beginning of 2011. Although materials such as the mother-of-pearl, stingray skin, black lip and abalone used in her products are sourced abroad as well as locally, everything is handmade by local Filipino artisans who carefully craft her pieces according to her satisfaction. Her brand produces only 1-3 pieces per design, making it even more exclusive. . Rachana Mirpuri talks to Reshma Chulani about her brand’s edge over other accessory brands and the best high in the design business...

To find out more information about Trousseau by Reshma products, please email Reshma at rchulani@gmail.com

After she was born in Mumbai, India about thirty years ago, Karishma Shahani lived briefly in Lagos, Nigeria until she moved back to Mumbai in 2005. With a penchant for writing and all things fashion, she worked as a fashion journalist for various publications before the ambition bug bit her, prompting her to start a multi-designer store called WHYM. Karishma spent her days curating designers from various fashion schools and promoting young talent. With a thirst to learn more and go even further, she eventually found her way to Europe and acquired a Masters of Science in Luxury Brand Management at the University of Monaco. After being exposed to European artists from different eras and learning indepth about various European luxury houses, Karishma was motivated to start her own handbag label. Upon her return to India in 2008, Karishma decided to combine her newfound knowledge along with access to Indian craftmanship - and thus Princesse K, inspired by Princesse Grace Kelly, was conceptualized and launched in July of 2009. Additionally Karishma also created a menswear label called Lord K under which she designs laptop and messenger bags for men.

Forgiveness is a bold act of courage. It is empowered, loving action. A divine choice to begin a process of recovery. Its restorative potential is amplified when one commits with a true intention to forgive. Ultimately it is a gift one gives to oneself.

It’s January 13th, 2012 and four months ago my sister and brother-in-law had their first kid (congratulations by the way). His name is Zidane Janet Bakshani (my sister was under the influence of anesthetics when she named him Janet). In a few weeks I will be meeting him for the first time. I can picture the encounter... I’ll pick him up, hug him and tell him hi. He will gaze upon my brown face with a quizzical look wondering if I’m going to just stand there and look back at him or if I am going to make myself useful and change his diaper. So he is four months and will have no idea what the world was like when he was this young. So I thought I would let him know... By Dr. Ajay Hotchandani

JIZYA: A

Venemous Curse on Hindus They were taxed simply for being Hindu.

Throughout the history of Islamic domination Muslim rulers commonly imposed taxes on their non-Muslim subjects as a punishment for their refusal to convert to Islam. This practice was characteristic during the period of Islamic rule in India following Mohammad-bin-Qasim’s conquest of Sindh in 712 A.D. While this cruel practice was quintessential during the Mughal era it existed during much of India’s rule by other Islamic invaders as well throughout the previous millennium. by Viju Sidhwani

The gruesome incident in which three Hindu physicians were murdered and one seriously injured in the Chakk district of Shikarpur, Sindh on November 7, 2011 was most likely a case of the racist and discriminatory practice of jizya. ƌĞƋƵŝƌĞĚƚŽĚƌĞƐƐĚŝīĞƌĞŶƚůLJĂŶĚďĞĂƌ ƉŚLJƐŝĐĂůƐŝŐŶƐŽĨƚŚĞŝƌ,ŝŶĚƵŝĚĞŶƟƚLJ͕ ŵĂŬŝŶŐƚŚĞŵĞĂƐLJƚĂƌŐĞƚƐĚƵƌŝŶŐƟŵĞƐŽĨ ƐŝĞŐĞĂŶĚĐŽŶƋƵĞƐƚ͘ dŚĞŐƌƵĞƐŽŵĞŝŶĐŝĚĞŶƚŝŶǁŚŝĐŚƚŚƌĞĞ ,ŝŶĚƵƉŚLJƐŝĐŝĂŶƐǁĞƌĞŵƵƌĚĞƌĞĚĂŶĚŽŶĞ ƐĞƌŝŽƵƐůLJŝŶũƵƌĞĚŝŶƚŚĞŚĂŬŬĚŝƐƚƌŝĐƚŽĨ ^ŚŝŬĂƌƉƵƌ͕^ŝŶĚŚŽŶEŽǀĞŵďĞƌϳ͕ϮϬϭϭ ǁĂƐŵŽƐƚůŝŬĞůLJĂĐĂƐĞŽĨƚŚĞƌĂĐŝƐƚĂŶĚ ĚŝƐĐƌŝŵŝŶĂƚŽƌLJƉƌĂĐƟĐĞŽĨũŝnjLJĂ͘tŚŝůĞŐŽǀͲ ĞƌŶŵĞŶƚƚĂdžĂƟŽŶŽĨWĂŬŝƐƚĂŶŝĐŝƟnjĞŶƐŵĂLJ ŽĸĐŝĂůůLJďĞĞƋƵĂůĨŽƌĂůůƉĞŽƉůĞƌĞŐĂƌĚůĞƐƐ ŽĨƌĞůŝŐŝŽŶŽƌĞƚŚŶŝĐŝƚLJ͕ƚŚĞƉƌĂĐƟĐĞŽĨ ũŝnjLJĂŝƐƵŶŽĸĐŝĂůůLJĐŽŵŵŽŶŝŶƌƵƌĂůĂŶĚ ĞǀĞŶŝŶƐŽŵĞƵƌďĂŶĂƌĞĂƐ͕ďĞŝŶŐƌĞŐƵůĂƚͲ ĞĚďLJůŽĐĂůŐĂŶŐƐƚĞƌƐ͘hŶĨŽƌƚƵŶĂƚĞůLJŵŽƐƚ ŵĞĚŝĂƌĞƉŽƌƚƐŽŶƚŚŝƐĞǀĞŶƚĂƌĞƚĞƌƐĞĂŶĚ ƐƵƉĞƌĮĐŝĂů͘tŚŝůĞƐƚĂƟŶŐƚŚĞďĂƐŝĐŶĂƚƵƌĞ ŽĨƚŚĞŝŶĐŝĚĞŶƚ͕ƚŚĞƉƵďůŝĐĂƟŽŶƐƚŚĂƚŚĂǀĞ ƌĞƉŽƌƚĞĚŽŶƚŚŝƐĐůĞĂƌůLJƐƚĂƚĞƚŚĂƚƚŚĞ ĐĂƵƐĞŽĨĐŽŶŇŝĐƚǁĂƐƚŚĞŵŝƐƚƌĞĂƚŵĞŶƚŽĨ ĂDƵƐůŝŵǁŽŵĂŶďLJƚŚĞĨŽƵƌ,ŝŶĚƵŵĞŶ͘ KŶůLJĂĨĞǁƌĞƉŽƌƚƐŝŶĐůƵĚŝŶŐŽŶĞďLJƚŚĞ ,ŝŶĚƵŵĞƌŝĐĂŶ&ŽƵŶĚĂƟŽŶ͕ŚŽǁĞǀĞƌ͕ ƐŚĞĚůŝŐŚƚŽŶƚŚĞĨĂĐƚƚŚĂƚƚŚĞĨĂŵŝůŝĞƐ ŽĨƚŚŽƐĞĨŽƵƌ,ŝŶĚƵŵĞŶǁĞƌĞĂŵŽŶŐ ŚƵŶĚƌĞĚƐǁŚŽĨŽƌŵŽŶƚŚƐŚĂĚƌŽƵƟŶĞůLJ ďĞĞŶƚŚƌĞĂƚĞŶĞĚĂŶĚďůĂĐŬŵĂŝůĞĚŝŶƚŽ ƉĂLJŝŶŐĂĚĞůŝǀĞƌĂŶĐĞƚŽƚŚĞůŽĐĂůDƵƐ-­‐ ůŝŵƚŚƵŐƐƚŽƉƌĞǀĞŶƚĨƵƌƚŚĞƌĂŐŐƌĞƐƐŝŽŶ ĂŶĚǀŝŽůĞŶĐĞĂŐĂŝŶƐƚƚŚĞŝƌĨĂŵŝůŝĞƐ͘dŚĞ ĂůůĞŐĞĚŵŝƐƚƌĞĂƚŵĞŶƚŽĨƚŚĞDƵƐůŝŵ ǁŽŵĂŶŝƐĂŚĂŶĚLJĚŝƐƚƌĂĐƟŽŶƚŽĐŽǀĞƌ ƵƉƚŚĞƚƌƵĞĐĂƵƐĞŽĨƚŚĞŵƵƌĚĞƌƚŚĂƚ ǁĂƐƚŚĞĞŶĚƌĞƐƵůƚŽĨĂƐĞƌŝĞƐŽĨďƌƵƚĂů

Poetry Delight

Have I told You Lately.... Jai Shri Krishna, Beautiful People!

Let’s take a walk to a special place that I have for special people. It is a special garden that I knew not I had cultivated. It has all sorts of flowers – the varieties are many and they are from all parts of the world. The shape and sizes vary but the fragrances intermingled with each other give off the most heady feeling. When were the seeds sown? When did the rains come down and help them to grow? When did they bloom? Who weeded the garden so that there was nothing to obstruct their growth and beauty? I know not when all this took place. All I know is that God Almighty spent a lot of Time in this Garden! My little Garden of Love. He sent me Family, Friends, and different people from different walks of life to come and live in this lovely garden with me. Today, of all the days that I have been put through – Today God took me by the hand and showed me what lovely people reside in my heart! <HVWKH*DUGHQLV0\KHDUW+HJDYHPHVRPDQ\%OHVVLQJV Blessings in the form of each and every being I have ever come into contact with. With all of the lovely messages and good wishes and blessings DQGZRQGHUIXOYLEUDWLRQVUHVRQDWLQJDOODURXQGPH I could never want for anything. I have realized today that though I have always prayed for the well being of all my near and dear ones without thought of personal gain – I have received in return – Blessings Innumerable! Blessings Bountiful! Have I told you lately Beautiful Wonderful People that I love you all and know that now whenever I count my Blessings I shall count each one of you twice! -XVWDVPDOOUHTXHVWVWD\LQP\JDUGHQRI/RYHDOZD\V and let me bloom in your hearts as you have in mine! God Bless One & All!

Ask Nicky & Komal

Q:

Dear Nicky & Komal,

I’m a Sindhi girl from Mumbai and I’ve been seeing this Sindhi boy for 6 months now. It’s still early, but it’s also a long enough period to see how the person’s personality is etc. My boyfriend had a troubled childhood, his dad left them when he was 5 years old and his mom beat him for years. He’s now 25. Because of his childhood, he’s very selfish, short tempered, angry and says things without thinking about people’s feelings. He hates missing me when he’s away and deals with it by shutting off. When he’s with me he’s attentive and affectionate but if I have a problem with him I’m scared to bring it up because he flies off the handle. He can never handle confrontation. This past week he has brought up marriage and hinted that he will soon propose. I’m struggling to make a decision - it is hard because if I confront him with something he says ‘If you don’t like it, don’t be with me’ and other similar stuff. I love him and when we’re together we’re great, but my question is - are there too many red flags to consider marrying him and I should walk away?

Q:

Dear Nicky & Komal,

I live in Singapore and I’m a 27 year old Sindhi boy working in an insurance company.Tonight I had a talk with my friends who are about 5 years older than I am. We talked about some serious stuff and somehow landed on future marriage prospects. All of the guys made arguments that marriage is pointless, and that divorce laws are grossly against men. The oldest one actually married and lost his kid. (This scared me as I’d never want to lose my kid). It was a long discussion, which I tried to counter them with. I have a girlfriend that I’ve been with for a year and a half we have talked about having future plans together. But after the talk with them, I feel really apprehensive about marriage now, and don’t know how to express this, especially since my girlfriend seems eager for the concept. I don’t know what to do. -Scared, Singapore

Dear Nicky & Komal, I am officially 3 months pregnant!! I have been thinking of names and have come up with many options that I love. The only problem is that my husband is dead set on a name that his mother had picked out for her baby which she miscarried a long time ago. I wouldn’t feel comfortable naming our child that because we aren’t on good terms with his mother, and I dont know if I would want to name our child on behalf of a child that passed away. For a fact I already know I will regret naming my child that. Any advice on how to navigate this matter? -Preggy, Panama ĞĂƌWƌĞŐŐLJ͕ DĂŬĞLJŽƵƌŚƵƐďĂŶĚƌĞĂůŝnjĞƚŚĂƚŶĂŵŝŶŐĂĐŚŝůĚƐŚŽƵůĚďĞĂũŽŝŶƚĚĞĐŝƐŝŽŶ͘zŽƵƐŚŽƵůĚĐŽŵĞƵƉǁŝƚŚĂŶĂŵĞƚŚĂƚLJŽƵďŽƚŚĂƌĞŚĂƉƉLJ ǁŝƚŚ͘dŽŵŽƌƌŽǁŝĨƐŝƚƵĂƟŽŶƐǁĞƌĞƌĞǀĞƌƐĞĚĂŶĚLJŽƵǁĂŶƚĞĚƚŽŐŝǀĞLJŽƵƌĐŚŝůĚĂŶĂŵĞƚŚĂƚLJŽƵƌŵŽŵǁĂŶƚĞĚĨŽƌŚĞƌŬŝĚǁŚŝĐŚƐŚĞ ŵŝƐĐĂƌƌŝĞĚ;ũƵƐƚĂŶĞdžĂŵƉůĞͿĂŶĚŚĞĚŝĚŶ͛ƚůŝŬĞƚŚĞŶĂŵĞͲǁŽƵůĚŚĞďĞŽŬĂLJǁŝƚŚŝƚ͍^ŽŝŵŵĂƚƵƌĞ͊ZĞĂƐŽŶǁŝƚŚLJŽƵƌŚƵƐďĂŶĚͲŝƚ ƐŚŽƵůĚďĞĂŶĂŵĞƚŚĂƚLJŽƵďŽƚŚĂƌĞĐŽŵĨŽƌƚĂďůĞǁŝƚŚ͘ŶŽƚŚĞƌǁĂLJĐĂŶĂůƐŽďĞ͕ŝĨLJŽƵŚĂǀĞĂĨĂŵŝůLJ'ƵƌƵŽƌDĂŚĂƌĂũƚŚĂƚLJŽƵƌĨĂŵͲ ŝůLJĨŽůůŽǁƐ͕ǁŚLJĚŽŶ͛ƚLJŽƵĂƉƉƌŽĂĐŚŚŝŵͬŚĞƌƚŽƐƵŐŐĞƐƚĂŶĂŵĞĨŽƌLJŽƵƌĐŚŝůĚ͍dŚŝƐǁĂLJŝƚǁŽƌŬƐŽƵƚďĞƐƚĂƐĞǀĞƌLJŽŶĞŝŶĐůƵĚŝŶŐŚŝƐ ĨĂŵŝůLJĂŶĚLJŽƵďŽƚŚǁŝůůďĞŚĂƉƉLJĂďŽƵƚƚŚĞŶĂŵĞ͘^ǁŝŶŐŝƚLJŽƵƌǁĂLJͲLJŽƵ͛ƌĞĂǁŽŵĂŶ͕ƌĞŵĞŵďĞƌLJŽƵŚĂǀĞǁŚĂƚŝƚƚĂŬĞƐƚŽŐĞƚLJŽƵƌ ǁĂLJĂƌŽƵŶĚ͊'ŝƌůƉŽǁĞƌ͊Ε<KD>

Q:

Dear Nicky and Komal,

I am a happy, positive man and very likable (I am quite well known and liked among the Sindhi community in London). I’ve not had an easy life to say the least. I’m not naive enough to think everyone else has a perfect life (like the ones you see in those happy films) and I appreciate it’s the different experiences, highs and lows we go through that make us who we are. However, I have been feeling lonely especially over the last few months. I tend to go out alone because my few really good friends have settled down, have kids and don’t go out so much any more. I suppose contributing to this feeling of loneliness is also the fact my new contract job is largely based from home so there’s not much social interaction even with work. In addition to this, I’ve also recently been feeling sad that, to me, the world just appears to be getting more and more selfish. Very rarely to people surprise me - every now and then I come across someone who really is a selfless and kind person but most I feel are not. Do you think this is the way of the world now? Where everyone is out for themselves, with no sense of doing good? What do you think I should do? -Lonely, London

She told her mother: “Mom, Tushar just proposed to me an hour ago.” “Then why are you so sad??” her mother asked. “Well, he also just told me that he was an atheist. He doesn’t beleive in God, heave, angels etc. He doesn’t even believe that hell exists!” Her mother replied; “Honey, marry him anyway. Between the two of us, we’ll show him how wrong he is.” A man has six children and is very proud of his achievement. He is so proud of himself that he starts calling hi wife ‘Mother of Six’ in spite of her objections. One night they go to a party. The man decides that it’s time to JRKRPHDQGZDQWVWRÀQGRXWLIKLV wife is ready to leave as well. He shouts at the top of his voice, “Shall we go home now, Mother of Six??” +LVZLIHÀQDOO\IHGXSZLWKWKHKXVband, shouts back “Anytime you’re ready, Father of Four!” /ǁĞŶƚĮƐŚŝŶŐƚŚŝƐŵŽƌŶŝŶŐďƵƚĂŌĞƌĂ ƐŚŽƌƚƟŵĞ/ƌĂŶŽƵƚŽĨǁŽƌŵƐ͘dŚĞŶ/ ƐĂǁĂĐŽƩŽŶŵŽƵƚŚƐŶĂŬĞǁŝƚŚĂĨƌŽŐŝŶ ŚŝƐŵŽƵƚŚ͘&ƌŽŐƐĂƌĞŐŽŽĚďĂƐƐďĂŝƚ͘ <ŶŽǁŝŶŐƚŚĞƐŶĂŬĞĐŽƵůĚŶ͛ƚďŝƚĞŵĞ ǁŝƚŚƚŚĞĨƌŽŐŝŶŚŝƐŵŽƵƚŚ/ŐƌĂďďĞĚ ŚŝŵƌŝŐŚƚďĞŚŝŶĚƚŚĞŚĞĂĚ͕ƚŽŽŬƚŚĞ ĨƌŽŐ͕ĂŶĚƉƵƚŝƚŝŶŵLJďĂŝƚďƵĐŬĞƚ͘ EŽǁƚŚĞĚŝůĞŵŵĂǁĂƐŚŽǁƚŽƌĞůĞĂƐĞ ƚŚĞƐŶĂŬĞǁŝƚŚŽƵƚŐĞƫŶŐďŝƚ͘^Ž͕/ ŐƌĂďďĞĚŵLJďŽƩůĞŽĨ:ĂĐŬĂŶŝĞůƐĂŶĚ ƉŽƵƌĞĚĂůŝƩůĞǁŚŝƐŬĞLJŝŶŝƚƐŵŽƵƚŚ͘ ,ŝƐĞLJĞƐƌŽůůĞĚďĂĐŬ͕ŚĞǁĞŶƚůŝŵƉ͘ /ƌĞůĞĂƐĞĚŚŝŵŝŶƚŽƚŚĞůĂŬĞǁŝƚŚŽƵƚ ŝŶĐŝĚĞŶƚĂŶĚĐĂƌƌŝĞĚŽŶĮƐŚŝŶŐƵƐŝŶŐ ƚŚĞĨƌŽŐ͘ůŝƩůĞůĂƚĞƌ͕/ĨĞůƚĂŶƵĚŐĞ ŽŶŵLJĨŽŽƚ͘/ƚǁĂƐƚŚĂƚƐŶĂŬĞ͕ǁŝƚŚƚǁŽ ŵŽƌĞĨƌŽŐƐ͙
