39 prasanna

prasanna... the guy behind hyattrance from the hyatt side. very courageous to try the first trance event at a five-star hotel in nepal. he says his colleagues are laughing at him saying that the event will be a guaranteed flop.

help us out to prove them otherwise. show up at the hyatt on july 5, 2003 for the next big trance event in kathmandu... hyattrance... NO COVER.
