“You wanted me to play a role in your by the fireside series as a gong-gong beater. Infact i trust if my TWI was good at that time i would hv been in it but u said one thing which touched my heart at that tender age that “wow boy, you are very good and will go far just learn the twi for me ok” reads part of the post on Facebook.
