Some students rendered vocal songs, while some budding artists played tabia, harmonium and Tanpura. The little artists enthralled the audience with guitar, veena and sitar.
Now, it was my turn. It was my first performance on the stage. I felt very nervous and prayed the god to save my honour. However, after I started singing I forget everything. I was totally engrossed in rendering Rag Vihag.
I even forget if any audience was listening to me till there was loud clapping in the auditorium. I was thrilled with joy, when my name was announced for the first prize.
I was given a gold medal by the Chief Guest. I felt very proud and happy. This was the happiest day of my life.
