The motivation, passion and positive feedback leads only in one direction…..forward. The knowledge you (both) have needs to be shared further and I hope we (all of us) can work together to create a structured platform to impart the knowledge of Sanataan Dharma……you will be surprised at how many people will stand with you.” – Dillan Shikotra
