Thanks for that video Gal, it literally blew the light out of that frame. Also with me was my dear friend Aditya Desai and Sonali cozied up in a booth near the fire.
"I wana thank all my friends and fans from across the globe who poured in with the wishes. I wish everyone wisdom in these dark times - words are often thrown about like shredded paper and so I ask of you to stop and ponder on the ones you use in lets say one day..."
