Ankita Raju Meshram
Consultant and Artist in Mumbai, India
My name is Ankita and I love singing.
Singing and music have always been my passion, however, I started seriously pursuing it an year ago, when I started training in Uttar Bhartiya Shastriya Sangeet.
Coming from a very traditional background, education was always the top priority for my family and hence I have done "the whole nine yards" (engineering, MBA, job in MNC). I did learn Bharatnatyam for 10 years though.
A year ago, I had this light bulb moment. After working long hours at my advisory firm and realizing that I am 26 but already feeling like I have lived centuries, I decided to take charge of my life and do what I actually love doing.
I joined the music classes, which I had put on hold for years. I had always been an avid reader but I could find time only during my commute to work and back. So I made a point that I read at least one book every week.
I believe that your life changes for better when you decide to make it happen and work towards it. Inaction is the biggest regret, don't ever let it happen to you.
