  • I KNOW IOUF SINCE 1996, AND HAVE FOUND THEM VERY RECEPTIVE TO NEW IDEAS. IOUF HAS BRIDGED THE GAP BETWEEN PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES. THANKS TO THE EMBASSAY OF THE NETHERLANDS, NEW DELHI TO BE RECEPTIVE WHEN I VISITED THEM AND STAFF CONGRATULATED ME. IT WAS A VERY RARE AND EXTRAORDINARY GESTURE.
