In my childhood days I learnt Mandolin for 6yrs. I gave many concerts representing our Institution, had many applause but I was too young then to realise the importance of an art. At one concert I still remember, we were giving it in an open auditorium where all police department and district collector and some other Government officials were there. The Dist. Joint collector came to me and as it was cold, she wrapped her woollen shawl around me and appreciated with a hug for my performance.
When I was in 9 th standard we moved far and due to the busy schedules I could not make it possible to go to the institution and finally I left the practice. I still regret for discontinuing playing Mandolin.
