When you are going better with detail line of management, what do you expect from the forum. If it's acknowledgement....We do acknowledge your line of treatment and logic !!

Thanks for the acknowledgement sir. I really appreciate your opinion. You are a support pillar for every young curofian like me. And yes you asked about what I expect from forum is that, if someone can add something valuable to it that can enhance the line of treatment. As you have already appreciated, I am blessed.
