I made it to Mumbai from Delhi! And to say it was worth it, would be a huge understatement. I am tempted to say the Sahir program was the best ever. It was an emotional, intellectual and spiritual experience. This is a great public service, and in the genre, Ibaadat is head and shoulders above anything we have seen. Anjali Alexander
