While I am adequately exposed to cultural programs I must admit that Sufi Kathak was a new experience for me. You were poetry in motion and accompanied by the right musicians our experience helped us transcend time into the eras of have been -but eras that must continue to exist. Congratulations on your efforts and keeping alive what we all Indians must be proud of and love to treasure."

"Beautiful!!! You are so, so graceful. We had a lovely evening. Thanks a lot for inviting."
Shibani Bawa
"I have been receiving your beautiful invitations 'Dance of the Mystics' for quite some time. Each one is a charming creation of an exclusive aesthetic sensibility. Some are far more brilliant than the renditions of some singers who struggle to sing Sufi Kalaam but don't quite succeed. I have kept them in my record. Sufism has very little to do with one's apparel and appearance which are changeable exterior. One has to be Sufi internally to do justice to Sufi music and dance. I am absolutely elated to observe that you have consistently upheld a very high standard of Graphic Design to draw attention to this unique art-form called 'Dance of the Mystics'...You are doing a splendid job of preserving and promoting an art that is among India's most precious treasure. God bless."
Dr. SS Bhatti
