'Hello Papa. How are you?'
(I call my hubby Papa, after the Indian tradition :) )
'I need a singing teacher. ASAP!' he says, from Delhi.
'For whom?' I ask.
'For me. I want to learn to sing. Properly. Find me a teacher. Someone who can teach me Indian Classical Music. I don't want to learn South Indian singing. I want Hindustani Classical Music teacher.'
'Ok, ok, I will find someone. I am happy you want to do something other than work. This is indeed an auspicious sign. May I ask why, suddenly?'
'Because I want to become a rock star!'
Edited to add: I got permission to reveal this on the blog because I assured him that this way we will surely find the singing teacher. So if anyone has heard a harmonium around Sanjay Nagar, or somewhere in Bangalore, please tell. Fast. A rock is to become a Star!
