I am an avid music lover and as a kid I learnt Tabla and Harmonium. I used to go to Bharti Bhavan to learn these instruments but couldn't continue because summer vacations meant the teachers who taught us, were asked to take music classes else where as the attendance of kids at my centre was low. I always was amazed with the kids who were part of the music club and played various instruments in our morning assembly at school. 

Moving on, I have always thought of my headphones as my saviour on tours. Firstly because listening to music is one of my favourite pass times and secondly because it saves me from listening to unwanted talks going around. I am a bit of a techie when it comes to choosing gadgets that I would like to own and so my new Sony headphones are my prized possession.

At home, my father and I like to listen to old Hindi songs on Saregama caravan that my sister and I gifted him on Father's Day in 2018.

Music is amazing in so many ways. The other day I was listening to a random song and it brought back memories from my Australia tour in 2016. So every tour of mine, I tend to listen to a list of songs that comprises of my all time favs and few others which I grow a liking to, during that tour.

Having so much time on hand, I decided to do this fun activity and really enjoyed putting together this list.
