I found this photo of me on a NewsEastWest article about an event that I had performed at in the Toronto City Hall, in the presence of our Mayor, John Tory.

TORONTO: Organising the first-ever Diwali celebrations in collaboration with the Canada-India Foundation at the city hall here on Wednesday, Toronto mayor John Tory praised the contribution of the Indo-Canadians to the city and Canada.

“It is my great pleasure to host all of you here at Toronto’s city hall. This is one of the city’s first Diwali celebrations here. I want to thank you my co-host, the Canada-India Foundation,’’ the mayor said.

He said,“Diwali, the festival of lights, is a reaffirmation of hope, a shared commitment to friendship and goodwill…it is wonderful to be celebrating here with you at city hall.’’

The mayor recalled the discrimination faced by the first immigrants and how they have now become an important part of Canadian society.
