    Hi Aarthi,

    This is nice!!

    Why dont you try appearing as a host for the Sun TV show - Kitchen Galatta, you have all the skills to take over the show. I see currently inefficient people hosting and compering all together!

    If you have thought about it and received such compliments, please take action and it would be a hit for your profession!

    I'am trying here in Australia to appear in the local channel.

    Thank you,
