Hi Takashi,

I appreciate your feedback on this. We have been corresponding with Akshaya
who has been helping us put together the text. As you pointed out, how you
define 'small' depends on who you are and what you are comparing to.
Akshaya referred to Solapur as small.

Thank you very much for your help translating the letter.

Kind regards,
