      First and foremost, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Kuwait Organizers of Gulf Voice of Mangalore for creating such a great opportunity to the singers like me to exhibit our singing talents. Konkani singers received international recognition through this competition.

Last but not the least, my dear friends and well wishers, I would like to thank each one of you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers and best wishes conveyed through email, phones and by directly meeting me.
