Here’s Prashant Kishor’s message to I-PAC:
Hi, in matter of few hours, I would be partially subsuming myself and whatever little together we have assiduously build over last many years....hopefully to build something much bigger and better.
I must admit, despite having the comfort of being amongst people who I trust most and in the setting that is almost like my own, I am having a bit of nerves. Maybe normal but still....thought worth sharing.
I believe for all the thinking, assessing, planning etc there comes a time when we have to submit ourselves our destinies and the designs of the almighty.
I take this opportunity to thank each one of you who have opted to walk with me through this exciting and nerve wrecking experience over last few years.
Also seeking your best wishes to be able to live upto your expectations and faith in me. I pray to God for your lifelong association and success that brings meaningful change not only in our lives but all around US and beyound. Thank you!
