Dear and highly esteemed Secretary-General,

…I wish to offer you my deepest gratitude for the golden opportunity to participate in yesterday's most soulful Interfaith Service dedicated to our beloved United Nations and to your nobility-flooded leadership…Dear Secretary-General, you and the United Nations have been inseparably one for thirty years… Now you have become the tallest and most powerful wisdom-tree, sheltering all the countries, all the faiths, all the cultures and all the races…
