A techy got to do…

What has a techy got to do with Music Direction??? Hmm… yes anyone could think so… a busy Software professional for the past 9+years, mother of two naughty little boys… and music direction ! somehow it just doesn’t seem to gel together..

While studying in school, many people encouraged me to pursue music as a profession as I used to do a lot of singing be it for competitions, events, albums, jingles and so on.. But it was my decision to do my B.Tech and MBA, and made my corporate entry to the never asleep “Software World”…. Looking back, I am happy with all decisions taken so far.. but it was only later that I realized how much I missed something that I was so passionate about…. music… without even humming all these many years..

But God has his own plans for me… and when I was asked if I would like to do a Malayalam song for the National campaign driven by the National Academy of Customs, Excise and Narcotics, I said Yes!
An All India based musical album was released “Let Us break the chain of drugs” with songs from several regional languages… And my song was selected from Malayalam… It was such an honour to be part of this album that was also shared a song composed by renowned music director Aadesh Shrivastava that was sung by Sunidhu Chauhan, and another one sung by Javed Ali!

Yes , my maiden effort as a music director, composer and song writer .. and the feedback was great..
Here’s a thought that gave me strength all the while in this initiatve..We may have hundred reasons to NOT do a particular thing.. but just a single reason to DO it.. our passion… Yes, there were struggles and hurdles, but I am grateful to the Almighty for holding and guiding me in this new walk of life…
