People of all religions cannot come together kindly.
But we also need to live life, Rani said. “It is remarkable that in a year when people have separated from each other, we have come together in many ways. My family and I are inspired by all the people of the Commonwealth helping those who were struggling. In the UK – and around the world – people have put in a lot of effort. I am proud of that strength and it touched me. “
Hope of dawn
