    During my early days in college, I was very much inspired by your talk show “Finding the voices”. I still admire your project of 1001 Thagatchari. In fact, many of our members admire both projects and wish to know more about them, as we also feel the need of it. We believe that you would be the right person to enlighten us and many other on it.

Would love to hear your comments ...
