Remove Leading Whitespace From A Python String With .lstrip()

Calling .lstrip() on a python string trims any leading whitespace (including newlines), while leaving any trailing whitespace untouched. For example:

October 2023
Code
original = """

   hotel india juliett

    """

left_stripped = original.lstrip()

print(f"START|{left_stripped}|END")
Results
START|hotel india juliett

    |END
