  8. Namasthe Sangeetha:

    What you are doing is really great. Your humble attempt to take dance, Bharathanatyam in general to a wider audience is laudable.

    All those who are adepts in the Bharatanatyam and other Indian classical dances are the true ambassadors of our culture.

    When I published my book AM I A HINDU? in 1988, I never ever thought anyone will read that book. Today many editions later and countless copies sold around the globe, I have to say, writing that book is one of the best things I did in my life.

    I wish you Godspeed in your endeavors.

    May God bless you.
