May all of you be blessed abundantly,

K) Dear Sara, It was a pleasure to meet you in Delhi
, though, sadly, I was not able to see your performance. I left for Bangalore on the day of your performance in Delhi, and I was still in Bangalore when you were performing in my home-city of Calcutta. I hear that the performances were really good.

L) At a special reception for Rivers of Babylon in Mumbai:

What I saw and all those present heard, made us so emotional ... It was really wonderful to think of all the old times of those beautiful songs, those beautiful shbahoth, those beautiful sba’ten by Saeed... Sara was excellent, and the entire group ... no words can explain my feelings for that great evening. I couldn’t sleep that night...

You know I am a racing man I have the good fortune to be one of the luckiest owners. ... I had a horse called King of Babylon ... then another, Prince of Babylon...

Now, after seeing such a beautiful set of players whose songs are chiming in my ears and in my head all the night...I’m going to call my next horse, Rivers of Babylon!

S.S. (Mumbai)
