Unfortunately, I am not there for the concert, since I am performing in Udaipur today. I have never attended a Coldplay concert so I was dying to watch them perform live in India. But Thursday night was really memorable for me.

There was a small party organised at Taj Mahal hotel for all the artistes performing. Since dad (Shankar Mahadevan) is also performing, I tagged along.

He asked me how we write our songs and told me how they compose, etc. He said he believes very strongly about the Global Citizen cause. In fact, he told me it was his idea to do the concert in India. He is doing it for free.

At the end, there were just about 15 of us, and we had a beautiful intimate jam session. Chris sang for us and we sang for him. He sang three-four songs, including Yellow and Viva La Vida. Dad also performed and all of us joined in. It was beautiful and unforgettable. After that jam session, I don't regret missing the gig now.
