  80. 80. I was born in Jamshedpur in 1957, to doctor parents passionately interested in Carnatic music. Father, a very good untrained singer, taught me my first songs. Started Carnatic training locally at 7, and later with Sh T.M.Thiagarajan in Chennai, while I studied Economics at Loyola College. Parween Sultana's music made me yearn to learn Hindustani music. After an MBA at XLRI, I joined ITC Sangeet Research Academy as a music scholar under Pt.Nivruttibua Sarnaik of the Jaipur gharana.. Unfortunately, certain cardinal errors in training methods damaged my voice. Pt.Sunil Bose, another SRA Master with a brilliant scientific approach had studied some Western voice principles and evolved his own method for Indian music. He brought my voice back, but it was not a musical voice. Nonetheless, I owe my perspective of the Indian singing voice to him. I knew my salvation lay in the Western system and after years of searching, I found Prof. Peter Calatin in Rep. of Ireland in 1991. I started singing in 1993, and teaching voice in 2003.Who am I ? 30
