About the Prizes / trophies / shields won during Inter college / University days and later and a very interesting story ....

Sangam Kala Group once had Music director Jaidev (of film Hum Dono fame) alongwith Penaaz Masaani as judge in which I sang a Manna Dey non - film song composed by Dada himself and written by Madhukar Rajasthani ! It was the same year and before singing for Sangam Kala Group / Jaidev that I had won over a dozen cups, trophies, shields for Kirori Mal college whose proud alumni I am.

Jaidev didn't even give me a consolation prize .... even when Penaaz profusely praised me ! Later on while asking him I came to know .... he said " aap jab gaa rahay thay aisaa lagaa ki record baj rahaa hai .... aapnay gaanay ko rattu totaa karkay gaayaa isliye mainay koi prize nahi diya " .... I told him I don't need a prize now ... Composer Jaidev has told me me I sound like a record and thats a huge huge Prize for me !
