Sporting encounters

My two favourite hobbies besides singing are dancing and playing tennis. I started dancing when I was only 5 or 6 years old because my mother has been a classical dance teacher for many years.

I started learning Bharatnatyam from her, not knowing at all how much I would grow to love it. I learn Kuchipudi as well, and have been performing on stage since the age of 12.

I feel so blessed to have been given both music and dance as gifts from God as my talents. I feel I would be incomplete without either. As for tennis, I played the sport at the Varsity level for my High school in Houston.

The four years I played for my school were the most amazing days as an athlete. I won many matches and a few tournaments. My brother, my Bapu (dad) and I have been playing tennis as a family for years and we enjoy those moments the most when we are playing with each other.
