On a request from a fan Harsha Bhogle met a courageous American lady Kia Scherr who lost her husband and daughter to the Mumbai attack on 26/11.

Her One Life Foundation is seeking to bond more with the Mumbai police and other police forces around India to “restore balance, to deepen commitment to love unconditionally” because, as she says “love was brutally lacking in the terrorist attack”.
