Being an active member of Indian Soc during my first year so far, the community has been a big part of my time here. Despite the pandemic restrictions, I’ve been able to meet new people at UCL and other London universities. As a HUGE Bollywood and Punjabi music fan, this is something I hope to facilitate for others as Music Director next year by using music to bring us together as a community and meet people with similar tastes. As Music Director, I would do this by organising new society music events such as Sangeet and Antakshari nights ?
I believe I would be a good fit for the role as I have the best playlists in all the land (linked below x).

So, I first picked up a tennis racket at 4 years old (just stick with me for a second!) and up until today, I’ve spent a large proportion of my life training endlessly to improve, perfect and be the best. This is all well and good, but everything is down to you, to train, to have the drive and the need for perfection…so, when mum signed me up for bassoon lessons, it was like entering music with a different perspective – my whole life had been about being the best; instead, I wanted to meet people, to work with them and create music which sounded cool, no matter how technically good.

Don’t get me wrong, over the years I’ve put countless hours into playing 4 instruments, but it was the inclusivity that attracted me. It drove me to create music of my own and develop it with other musicians, whilst teaching kids/adults in drama, tennis, and music from all backgrounds and abilities, developing my creativity and patience. I learnt a different type of resilience to before – the resilience to work and push others to succeed. Knowing that what they do reflects on you, and the organisation and planning that comes with it, is a pressure only understood through experience. Alongside my attraction to pretty much every genre of music, the experiences I’ve had working alongside musicians/directors, and my love for working with people, I truly believe I’ll be a real asset to the Indian Soc team as Musical Director.

Also, I’ve got a couple of awesome ideas for Sangeet nights!
