My Dear Auditor Friends,
On the occasion of Diwali, I am sending you best wishes for the upcoming Hindu New Year.
I have gone through our several years of relations and related the experiences in my personal, social, and professional life to bring you this Diwali Greeting.
Your Responsibility for the Relationship
You are responsible for the your side of the relationship in accordance with friendship principles generally accepted in the entire world. This includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the friendship that are free from self interest, whether due to fraud or error.
My responsibility is to maintain this friendship from my end. I do this to the best of my ability in accordance with friendship standards generally accepted in the entire world. Those standards require that I do my utmost to keep this friendship intact and free of any outside interference.
