The person I admire the most: I admire every honest person on earth. Everyone is God’s creation. If you believe in the creator then you know what virtues in a person should be admired.
If I were not a singer: I wouldn’t have existed.
Happiness to me: The state of being. I am always happy so that the world feels happy being around me.
My most prized possession: Music and sensibility.
Low point of my life: There are many low points. I have seen times when people took away things from my rented house as I was unable to pay their instalments. A thousand low points come when you are hurt, humiliated, looked down upon or if there is some emotional setback.
High point of my life: When people love my music, my work. Every moment of my life I feel high.
Other than music I am passionate about: Life. I feel blessed to be born as a human.
My idea of comfort food: Whatever that makes me live the moment. I prefer vegetarian food most of the times. After my financial condition improved I bought a piece of farm and sourced our requirement of mustard oil, rice and vegetables from that farm. Thus whatever we eat is pure.
Aim of music is: To heal the world. Its aim is beyond entertainment. Music is a medium to cure the world. Actually, we are suffering and only music has the power to cure.
On importance of learning music: I did not learn music. However, it is important to learn music. It helps you do big and grow as well.
Why I could not learn music: I wanted to learn but things did not happen as I wanted them to be. Similarly, I wanted to complete college but I could not complete my studies after second year because of unfavourable circumstances.
I want to be remembered as: Actually, it’s a bitter truth that no one is ever remembered. What people remember is your deed, work or craft.
