No, seriously, he has a great sense of humor and a very good singing voice. I'm looking forward to this trip with great enthusiasm. You can be sure I will post every single detail.
In other news, heres an excellent post on that musical genius, Hridaynath Mangeshkar, who has been awarded a Padmashri, same as Akshay Kumar. This is the real Mangeshkar. The pure genius.

Cheers everyone. Be seeing ya soon!
