“During my scholarship at the West Bengal State Music Academy under the guidance of Ustad Raza Ali Khan, the legendary artist Sandhya Mukherjee used to visit our class. She attentively listened to our sessions and shared valuable insights drawn from her extensive musical journey and experience. I would like to share one such precious moment: one day while listening to my rendition (that I have learnt under the tutelage of my Guru), she put her hand on my head for blessings, and advised me to give priority to my career as a singer. I have then joined as a chemistry teacher in a college and had a plan to pursue as a Chemistry teacher in future. Her advice was very evocative and thoughtful, as she said: “Many are born as artists after many births, this birth of yours is an artist’s birth, value what God has given you, sing with your heart”. These words of Geetashree Sandhya Mukhopadhyay changed the course of my life,” recollects renowned musician Soumi Majumdar.
