January 14th, 2024, was a blessed day for me where the living legend of Hindustani classical vocal music Pt. Venkatesh Kumar ji after listened to my concert praised my effort by stating that he considered me as one of the torchbearers of Kiranan Gharana and that my singing was true to the Gharana style. That my gayaki reminded him of Padma Vibhshan Late Pt. Bhimsen Joshi will inspire me to practice more and more. My sincere regards for your inspiring words. You can't ask for more in life.
