I would sing for my friends while drumming and tapping on the classroom desks. It was the ‘90s, so there were many beautiful songs, like “Saanson ki zaroorat hai jaise…”
I’d only seen the piano being played for eight years of my life, because choirs mostly only have a grand piano; they don’t have guitars. So I started learning the guitar and bunking engineering classes to just learn the guitar on my own.
None of my family members had any musical background. They were all into our family business of trading textiles and of course they wanted me to pursue our family business as well. When I turned 18, they wanted me to join my family business but I had bigger dreams. I wanted to move out of Gwalior and see the world.
