Oops! I just realized you already have a vehivle for personal notes! Again, great job Ashokbhai.

After a memorable evening of Meghani-120 program @ TV Asia last Sunday, I learned about website ... Superb job Ashok Bhai .. I suggest you add a section where folks who were touched directly or tangentially by this great soul (Navin Mehta & Rahul Shukla for example) can add their personal Notes.
