However what All I want to share with you and all the others are that is has been a great pleasure to be working with you over the past five years. You have played a vital role in putting RNW on the map in India and surrounding countries. Working alone over there you managed to make deals with broadcasters like AIR and Gyan Vani and other well known media companies where other international broadcasters needed a full-fledged team or didn't succeed at all. Also you contributed significantly to the brand awareness of RNW in India by leveraging your huge network in the media-world in India. A big splash indeed!

You have been a wonderful person to work with; your never-ending optimism has been an inspiration for us all!
