  1. 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.

  2. 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!

    1. The did a fabulous job for this video, and brought together all the different voices, accents backgrounds and heritage. A beautiful tapestry that is Bharat.

      Thank you.
