From early childhood, my strong sense of rhythm and fascination with beats, led me to try out different percussion instruments. I started with the "Tabla",a unique Indian Congo-like instrument which I thoroughly enjoyed playing for all our School events. However I felt my expression limited to a certain genre of music, which diversified at best to fusion.
From there it was a natural progression to my Drum-set. The versatility of the different components-the crash, bass-drum, toms, all gave me an almost unlimited freedom to express myself. I loved the feeling of performing gigs - at schools, restaurants, stadiums - making hundreds of people sway to my beats. Getting critical reviews in news-papers also encouraged me to hone up my act.
But even as I continue drumming, my fascination with beats has led me to another dimension of creative expression - Dancing. Call it Hip Hop, B-Boying or Breaking.
In short, rhythm defines me.
