I am so happy to have been associated with YAxis and mainly with Hami Niroumand and Krishna Murthy. He has been exceptional in assisting me through the whole process. Hami – Your patience is endless. I have made you wait for so long and still you were always accepting my delays. And your knowledge about the immigration process and your details are exceptional. I thank you once again for helping me out in every regard. Krishna – You are awesome man. Your call reaches me faster than the email and that is awesome. Your response and communication are the best. You have such a morale booster and even when I thought of having a second thought, talking to you would boost me up and get back into track for getting the PR. Thank you once again and hope we stay in touch. Regards Shandilya
