@ ChiragSheth369 said- Sir, hold the door. Where to relax… give. But do not loosen up when it comes time to drag. Otherwise your kite will also be cut. Hopefully you understand this satire.
@Shunyagravity wrote – The way of catching the door shows that brother-in-law has also been a kite. That is why everyone’s kite is being cut and we are being climbed. May God give you a long life, so that the kite of country religion should always be Ajay waving in the sky.
