 Mangaluru: Music is my life. Without music I would not be able to live. Music makes me feel relaxed, and when we feel bored we hear music. Here is a story based on my life. When I was an infant my parents used to play music to make me fall asleep, and from there my music story begins. When I was four years old I started singing. My singing impressed my parents and my family members. They felt that I was talented at singing. My parents encouraged me a lot into the field of singing. I too loved the talent of my singing, so I started practicing singing at home. Once I attended a singing competition, I passed till the semi-finals, but I failed to pass in the finals.

I regretted my loss. I enjoyed singing a lot. When I turned nine, I saw a beautiful instrument that attracted my mind. I found this instrument interesting . And who can guess what was that interesting instrument? Yes, you guessed it right, it was VIOLIN. I requested my parents to put me for violin classes but my father said that my talent was singing. But looking at my sad face, he agreed. Finally the day arrived (the first day of my violin class). I had always longed for this moment, though it was not easy to hold the violin. I even loved the tune it produced – so charming, relaxing and soothing. My teacher said that I should answer the first grade exam.

I worked very hard and my result turned out to be a merit. I did not feel sad as it was my first time answering a violin grade exam .Instead I took a challenge, the next time and kept my pride as a distinction. I was the happiest person which included my parents, brother and family. I was also happy that I achieved my dreams. Even today I am attending the online singing class. I love my life and I’m making the best use of my time to become a good singer as well as a great violinist. I even encourage other people who are reading this story to not waste their time. I am following my father’s way of living, a systematic way of living. He has taught me to live a systematic life.

Thanks to my mother and brother who are supporting me in everything I do. Thanks to my grandparents ,uncles, aunts and all the people who have taught me several things to improve my life. I would encourage all children and parents to make best use of their talents. If anyone has the talent of cooking, try cooking different dishes. (My next article will be on my cooking hobby, that I recently started being home during the pandemic) Now that everyone is at home, most of the family members might be with you . Make a new dish and tell them to give the points. If anyone has the talent of singing, record a song and make your own channel. I have decided to make the best use of my talent.
