              Our Heartiest Congratulations on 71st Anniversary of India’s Independence Day

        “Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem
       our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially.  At the stroke of the midnight hour,
        when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom”- Jawaharlal Nehru, 14 August 1947.

       Dear Respected Members
       Firstly, the country has been hit by atrocities in the last few months. We as a
       Community share and show our solidarity to all families of the victims and
       we are all concerned by this, and to express our profound compassion. We
       grieve with the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones, and
       wish all those injured a speedy and full recovery. We Lohanas and Londoners
       have always displayed strength and resilience in the face of adversity and
       this time will be no different.

       Janmashthami, Navli Navratri, Diwali Musical/Chopda Poojan and Jalaram
       Jayanti are the highlights of this issue. The LCNL Lady President Urmilaben Thakkar MBE with the
       Executive Committee will have much pleasure in welcoming you all and participating in these
       auspicious events.

       In this issue, we explore:
       • Inheritance Tax Relief - by Dilip Kakkad
       • Elation of Vinubhai Kotecha BME and Nitin Palan MBE
       • My gratitude to Dilip for his informative article and hope you all find it useful.
       • All my Committee Colleagues for their input – always appreciated.
       • Ronak Paw as always remain helpful and for that I am grateful.
       • Steve and Sanjiv at Liquid Bubble for their “liquid” patience and “bubbly” understanding.
       My sincere thanks to all our advertisers for their continued generosity.
       Last but not the least, you all Members who encourages and inspire me to do my utmost.
       I remain, always willing- your obedient Lohana Sevak.

                                    You and I, together,
                                   A picture we do make;
                             You - engaged in plaiting and braiding
                               the twists and twirls of your lock;
                           And me - my eyes fixed on you – absorbed
                                  in the twirl of my thoughts!
