"I am happy to learn that "Diwali at Times Square" is being organized on October 16, 2016, in connection with the festival - Diwali. On this occasion, I extend my best wishes for the success of the event."
"I wanted to sincerely thank you for including me as part of the incredible Diwali celebration at Times Square. I felt so lucky to be able to share such a special moment with thousands of people. Times Square, as one of the brightest places on earth, was the perfect location to honor light over darkness. After working for many years in Congress to get the Post Office to issue a stamp commemorating Diwali, it was moving to celebrate knowledge over ignorance and good over evil with so many participants. It was the perfect reward for all of the hard work. Thank you again for including me as a part of a wonderful event."
"It was great to be with you all as a part of a grand event. We wish you more success for future."
"It was wonderful to experience the joyful #DATS2016 celebration live from Times Square #NYC--the perfect place to usher in the New Year spreading energy, excitement and promise to the world."
"Heartiest Congratulations for a well-organized event which brought joy/color and showcased Indian Art & Culture in the heart of New York City."
"Please accept my congrats and appreciation for an excellent show and management of the event. I am very impressed. Thanks for all the gesture you did to Western Union and to me."
"This was a great event and companies wanting to reach out to the robust Indian community in the tri-state area should consider sponsoring it for sure."
