Quizzed about his school, the singer turned nostalgic. Taking a journey down memory lane, he said: "I did my schooling from RBT Vidyapith, Sinthi (Kolkata), which is a Bengali medium school. I have loving memories of my school. I had a lot of friends. I was a very good painter and my paintings were displayed in our school exhibition. Those were beautiful days!"

The singer had also expressed his joy on Instagram on Friday. Sanu wrote: "So honoured to receive Doctorate by the American University USA for Global Peace and contribution in Music. I've studied in Bengali medium, never imagined of getting this kind of honour from an American university! Thank you #globalpeace."
