Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences. 150-word limit. Sitting cross-legged on the woven plastic mat a chaapa upon the stage I tune the shruti box to my pitch F sharp. Dressed in a flowy red and green Langa voni I'm facing the audience and the row of Hindu deities intricately carved into the temple's marble wall. Once I position the mic in front of my mouth I begin singing. As I progress through the song a wave of tranquility passes over me even though the song's Sanskrit lyrics are hundreds of years old. I feel the emotion they express through the melody, I recollect the story behind the song as told by my music teacher and feel connected with my culture. For the past twelve years, the art of Indian Carnatic vocal music has given me a form of expression. I unleash my creativity through singing At Brown. I hope to continue sharing my love for music through Brown Barsaat.
