Dear Shri Singhania.

Congratulations! I was delighted to learn of your remarkable feat of breaking the world record in hot air balloon flying on Saturday the 26th of November 2005.
Your inspiring feat has already been applauded by young and old across the country. I hope it motivates all our citizens to similarly seek new heights in whatever they do - in business, in sport, in work, in art and in every walk of life. The example set by you to reach new heights is an inspiring example. You have shown both courage and determination and combined a spirit of adventure with careful planning and execution. These are attributes of both a good business leader and a spirited sportsperson. Such are the attributes that must motivate all of us in whatever walk of life we seek our destiny. I compliment you once again for making your fellow Indians proud. May your path be blessed.
