With stock markets not offering much cheer I'm sure each one of us looks forward to more 'Prosperous' times.
In the meanwhile, Punekars are set for a musical feast in the upcoming Divali week.
Traditionally Punekars are discerning audiences and being accepted by Punekars is something all artists look forward to.
