  3. Hi Poornima:
    Sorry that you had difficulties with the video. It is still there and working. Depending on the connection, I think it may take a moment for the embedded play to show.

    If you are still having difficulties, try this link directly to the You Tube video.

    Jai Hind.

  4. I am not able to see the video… The video area just appears blank!!!

  5. This is a perfect representation of how I feel India: gentle, yet strikingly artistic!On this day, may it serve as a constant reminder of how we should always keep India high in our lives! I’m an Indian at heart. Jaya He!
