I was of 16 years when for the first time I proved me by holding the 1st position at the North Bengal Golden Talent Contest, organised by H.M.V.(1994). Eminent vocalist Late Pt. A.T. Kanan and Vidushi Girija Devi was enthralled by my performances and gave me their blessings. While I was under the tutelage of the maestroes of my hometown I stood first in Yuva Utsav, organised by West Bengal Government. I was selected as a member of CCMA(Calcutta Cine Musicians' Academy) in 1998. That was a the root cause for me to leave my birth-place and coming to Kolkata for betterment and I starred taking "talim"(tutorial) under Pt. Samar Saha(Itc,SRA) from 1999.
