I started touring with Shankar and his band during my college and university days. So on weekdays, I would work at a cardiology office, and on the weekends, I’d sing. I loved how music made me feel, so I decided to give it a serious shot. My mom gave me two years to figure out my singing plans and if they did not work out, I was to go back to medical school,” she revealed in an interview.
