    1. Hi Anagha,
      Thank you for getting in the new interface… I would like to add a precaution here… the introductory line of a topic is starting right after the name of the author… there should be a line break or a full-stop…

      Thanks and ALL The BEST…


    2. Thanks for pointing that out Naveen. We’ll fix that in the next issue. 🙂
