Dear Stefano,
I hope you received my new yr wishes which I sent last year. First of all many congratulations on the final budget report. Tahir and I were pleasantly surprised that there was even a surplus. This is a lesson for all of us that prudent spending and team effort and strategizing can make a huge difference. I think asking speakers to self sponsor and also sponsor lunch contributed to the surplus. Its been fantastic working with you and both Tahir and I have learned a lot : patience, trust, self-belief and perseverance. Warm regards. Hope you will not forget us !! My regards to Ester and Giulia. Pls thank them for their hard work. Regards Rajiv
