I thank you very much for the excellent job done by you. It was superb. You have given us a detailed view of the entire Piedade Divar Bonderam 2012 (which was much awaited by me and my family out here in Delhi) right from the ferry point till the last float. I have never been to Goa on this ocassion but enjoyed watching bonderam 2012 posted by you. Keep up the good work as always. Sorry for the delayed “thankyou” (more than one month since you posted this event on your blogspot).

Kind regards
