Dear Niloufer and Prabhu,

Thank you both, so very much, for the wonderful opportunity I was granted this past weekend. It was such an honor to participate. I greatly enjoyed meeting everyone – thanks again, Prabhu, for taking such care in introducing me around. And working on stage with Amish was such a delight. He really is a wonderful and gifted gentleman.

The level of speakers throughout Sunday’s conference really was first-rate. I do hope it is possible to extend your reach in future conferences. The quality and depth of these speakers was just wonderful.

Very warmest regards to you and everyone involved in the conference,




Please accept my sincere felicitations and congratulations on your continued commitment to keep alive the memories and contributions of the iconic Khuswant Singh . I wish i could have been a part of your celebrations in person but I will be with you in spirit as KS is and has always had been one of my heroes.

Dear Niloufer,

Many congratulations to you and Rahul on the success of the Khushwant Singh Festival in London.  It was great to meet both 

of you too. 
 I found the panels to be very interesting and enjoyed talking to the different participants and people in the audience.  I am sure the evening at the Mayfair was very enjoyable too and I am sad to have missed it.
Wishing you all the best,
