Bihar Foundation leased new life to my project

Dear Shri Satyajit Singh Ji,

Warm greetings from Widnes, Cheshire, England.

Thank you very much indeed for your encouraging e mail. Simply I have no word to express my gratitude. I was on the point of giving up my dream after struggling for the last three years on this project, but your e-mail has given the fresh life to the project. This is the first time that some one from the Bihar govt administartion has contacted me about this pilot project.

I have now got your telephone no and I shall be in touch with you early next month when I will be at the medical centre in my village.

With very best wishes and kindest regards.
