Hiyalo Kath: I tried to write a song for a farewell party while I was in the 12th standard, and even performed it…though it was an embarrassing one (smiles),however, it did inspire me to continue with my passion.

I have my own style of writing since I’m not trained in this area…Usually, I write when an idea or a concept strikes me but sometimes I look for inspiration too…Firstly, the main theme is penned, composed and arranged(rhyming words) and the rest comes later on…
