Dr. Asha,

Thank you for the very nice event tonight.
I know first hand that it takes a lot to ask, beg, borrow to put together an event like this. You have done this with great charm with a great strain on your personal time. What is most noble that you did not do it for yourself but for others. It takes a great amount of conviction and charitable spirit, to disregard what others think and do what is right. You have done this as a family enterprise with all members of your family showing exemplary support, which is a great lesson for us.

Pls accept my congratulations, and thank you for creating a forum and avenue for us to do our share.

Warm Regards

Vikram Khurana

Hi Asha,

Congratulations on a great function. You were great. You spoke well and looked amazing!  The entertainment was really good. Other then the small donation we showed support also by buying lots of raffle tickets.


Dear Asha,

Congratulations on a successful event and associated media coverage.  It was a pleasure to be involved.  If there is any additional coverage, pls let me know.



Congratulations to you both on another highly successful event. 



It was a wonderful evening. 
Thanks for inviting us.


Dear Dr. Seth,

Thank you for sharing the article in India Abroad.  I enjoyed the event and I appreciate everything you’re doing in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.  The NIMDAC Foundation dinner helped to bring significant attention to our work in the South Asian community, and the proceeds will help us continue to develop our important research and health promotion initiatives.  Events such as this are extremely important: the audience learns more about the issue and our research, what kind of changes they can make in their own lives, and how they can make an impact in the lives of others by supporting our work with a donation.As someone who has been tremendously successful in raising funds and awareness for a variety of organizations
Thank you again.  Your actions inspire others.

Warm regards,

Dear Drs. Seth,

Keith Gordon, Anne and I would like to thank and congratulate both of you for so gra-ciously welcoming us as your guests to a spectacular evening. It was an added pleas-ure to meet your daughter and grand daughter.

The honour you bestowed on The Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled Per-sons and it visionary leader, Vim Kochhar could not have been more appropriate for both the occasion and the ideals which the Foundation espouses.

I do hope that both of you will take some time to not only catch your breath but reflect on what you have accomplished in awareness and financial support to persons with disabilities.

I know that our paths will continue to cross.

Dear Dr. Seth,

I am the Manager for Dr. Ahluwalia and had the pleasure of participating in the annual NIMDAC dinner meet few weeks ago. First of all let me congratulate you for the grand success of the function and excellent organizing. Everything from start to end was worth admiring.

The speeches by the dignitaries including you were quite interesting and informative and so were the dance performances. The dance performance that took the breath away in particular was the Candle dance. Many thanks.
