The need to have something that touches our hearts and soul and gives us respite, the need to have words, expressions and more that instil hope and inspire. We have immense talent in India, and under the aegis of the Delphic Movement, I hope to be able to bring this talent to the forefront for the whole world as we did in the case of Yoga.” She thanked the Indian Delphic Council for honouring her as the National Delphic Ambassador for Classical Performing Arts.
