Yet another year has drawn to a close and what a tumultuous year it has been! If the economic meltdown wasn't bad enough, Indian pride and our sense of security was deeply dented by a bunch of terrorists , who I believe have inadvertently brought us closer to each other as a nation. The eternal optimist that I am - I feel the worst is over for us and that 2009 is going to dawn on us in a bright and beautiful manner. As artistes, we also have a strong role to play- in healing the troubled and disturbed minds, as also in trying to bring families and communities together.

I'm going with Barack Obama's Presidential campaign mantra - "YES WE CAN!" Yes, my friends, I know we can have a great year, we can and will overcome hurdles and stumbling blocks, we can make our country and all its lively citizens happy, healthy and prosperous.

So, here's wishing you all unbounded joy, and from me personally, a promise that I will earnestly try to regale all my listeners with good classical music!
