"Marvellous and entertaining evening"
Dearest Poonam Thank you for inviting us all to the 2014 Indian society dinner gala. We all enjoyed it very much and we're very impressed. From the entertainment to the venue, all we're exceptional. The entertainment especially was very well organised and laughing to jokes of Shazia made the event unique

"Impressed"
Dear Mr & Mrs Chakrabarty, I am most grateful for giving me the opportunity to accompany you and participate in the good cause of the event of the 27th annual charity and celebration of the Yorkshire Indian Society on the evening of the 28th of April. I was impressed by the friendly faces of whom I knew just a few I, but my feeling was that I know everyone. The organization of the event and the choice of the place were superb. The enthusiasm of everyone, particularly the Chakrabarty, to help the needy was very touching, exemplary and enjoyable.Also, I enjoyed very much the delicious diverse food, though the meat was slightly too spicy for a mediterranean man.Dancing and music were great to a degree that I wanted them not to stop all the time. Many thanks for you and this very respectful Society.
