Although my mother is born and brought up in Ahmedabad and my father is born and brought up in Kolkata , I hardly know any Bengali or Gujarati except ’Kem Cho’ and ‘Bhalo Bhasho’. Now that you know my background, lets acquaint you with my passion. Well, it’s music! Music is that one thing that keeps me going in life , through all the bad times and the not-so-bad times ! I am (and will continue to be )a student of Carnatic Classical music and learn from my mother. I play the tabla too. Other than music, I love reading , painting and talking( more precisely , debating ). So, I badly need ways to express myself! And that’s how writing comes into the picture too! But , on the whole, I feel I am quite a simple person ,simplicity is my art of living. I take a lot of pride in my integrity and my roots. I like upholding the values that my parents have instilled in me and will strive to do so in the future too.
