Thanks for organising a wonderful family event - TARA Ugadi 2012 with sumptuous lunch. The telugu melodies have been sweet and it was great to see all people getting involded & dancing to the catchy tunes. Also Kudos to the performances on Skits, and special thanks to Surya Prakash for all the ideas and the great direction. I think we should be doing these more often.
