    It is with tremendous pleasure; I leave this reply to offer my heartiest and well-earned congratulations to Ms. Meena Nanji on her “Here and Away, featured at Los Angeles Pacific Fest!”

    I have not had the good fortune of seeing this feature film but our observation on our world has much aroused our fear on our much endangered and perilous globe which is exposed with threat. These are my thoughts and examination and does not relate to “Here and Away.”

    I would like to take this opportunity to offer further Ms. Menna Nanji my very best wishes on her deliberation and endeavours which apparently have already paid her up with many accolades and successful venture. Sincerely, Nizarali Shviji!
