  <p>This is Topic 1 contained in the same section as the Topic 2. When this topic ends ,then we add horizontal role. This includes content centered on topic1.</p>
  
<hr>

  <p>This is new topic contained in the same section as the Topic 1. This new topic contains the content after the horizontal role.This is another block of content centered on a particular topic.</p>
