    My childhood passion was singing. I wanted to participate in my school talent competition but did not have the courage to face the stage. I wanted to earn atleast 1 trophy in my life. During college I tried my hand in a duet talent competition. Luckily i got my close friend take part, who had the same dream. We both sang english and tamil duet. I was dead nervous, and after my performance I just, I wasnt sure of anything positive. We then had to leave for the day and as i was just entering my bus , I was flooded with calls, I had won both the trophies! I was speechless. Its true when said " When God gives, He gives what you have never imagined"
