  1. Dear Mr Shekhar,

    It is a great honour and pleasure to communicate with you. I belong to Pakistan. Your website provides very valuable information on emotions and other topics.

    Do you have a copy of “9. Motivation and Emotion” in ms word or editable format. I need it for notes with all respect to copy rights.

    Thank you
