Admission is FREE.

Jai Hind!

    Splendiferous ! Although, they dropped the amateur contest from the schedule, so Philadelphia missed my singing and dancing. Alas, what a lost opportunity. hahaha :)
    Hmm, so when is the next Bollywood movie at the Oaks ?

    Hello Swapnil Shah,

    Thank you for a warm welcome.

    It was good to meet you yesterday. I apologize that I didn't have a chance to mingle, chat an meet everyone else :-(. I arrived late from work and wanted to catch up on the show, a late lunch & some jewelry. :-). The show was awesome as usual and I captured a lot of pictures for my portfolio.

    Hopefully I'll get to meet everyone else on the up-coming Baltimore Ave. Dollar Walk.

    Sincerely your,
    Sprite'
