  8. Dear Datta Sb, Dr. Taimur Sb, Suhaib Kiani Sb,

    I only wish to record my appreciation and gratitude also for hosting for so long as I believe it is one of the few sites for serious music for serious listeners. Please convey my profound regards to your all team members who spare time and energy for maintaining the site despite their own regular jobs and engagements.

    May I avail this opportunity to ask for little more attention to its technical side which off course can be improved and quality enhanced.

    My regards and best wishes for all of you

    Javaid Ali Khan
