Dear Bhoopathy
It is a matter of great pride to welcome you on board. Thank you for your neatly written piece about the ICC cleanup at Marina and other beaches.
Perhaps Khalid or Shekhar may have mentioned to you that our goal is that this activity is not confined to being just an annual event, but a sustained dedicated and successful movement to improve the cleanliness of our country. It is important that we keep connecting with people who have the same goals, as there is strength in numbers and it is vital that we synergize our efforts and not work in our own cocoons.
I look forward to connecting with you on email and for your support.
With my very best wishes and regards,
Mukund
Cdr (Retd) Mukund Lele
