My Life History | My Education | Life after Marriage | Sikkil Bani
I studied in Rosary Matriculation School. No one knew that I would play flute until I stepped into 7th standard. I was very shy and refused to participate in school cultural activities. Later, one of my teachers took the initiative and made me play a solo piece. This became an opening for me to participate in inter school music competitions. My most interesting subject in school was biology and this encouraged me to take up botany as my major in Stella Maris College. Just loved that subject and used to be one among the class toppers. Soon my principal and head of the department, on knowing my potential, would allow me to participate in all cultural activities of the college. As a result, my interest in music blossomed and winning prizes for my college gave me great confidence to pursue my musical career.
During the same period, I started giving concerts in sabhas both in Chennai and outside. After my graduation, I joined Presidency College for post graduation in botany. It was destiny which completely made me a music professional as I was forced to discontinue my M.Sc degree. I thank god for showing me this divine path of music. My other interests included painting, embroidery and a bit of creative hand work
