Sometimes, I was not ready to go for the Piano classes but my mom was very stern and wanted me to learn the Piano. Now I am very happy that I know to play the Piano. I was allowed to pick my area of interest right from the second PUC and I chose CA. It took me a long time to complete my CA with the full support and encouragement of my family”.
