Asak Sir,

It is a sheer pleasure to see you on the dais with 'the President of our Country'.

It is a matter of Honour & Pride for our Kokani Community to see someone amongst us reaching the hieghts that you have achieved. It is surely an inspiration for individuals like me to look at you and learn to strike a balance between proffssional life & social responsibilities.

I have always believed strongly that what your learn from the society has to be returned back to cmmunity and you have clearly demonstarted to us how the same can be done.

Once again, I would like to congratulate you for conquering the hieghts that you have reached and I would personally like to 'Thank You' for being an inspration to the younger generation and craving a path for others to follow on the same.

Jazaak Allah Khair
