1. As a great YouTube artist, tell us something more about yourself?
2- How was the musical grooming since childhood? When did it all start?
3- During your student life how did music go on with you? What routines do you follow to keep up with everything?
4- You are currently pursuing M.Sc. in information and communication systems. How did that interest you? What would you like to take up as your career?
On securing merit in 12th, I did my Electrical and Electronics engineering in PESIT. I am now pursuing Masters of science M.Sc. in Information and communication systems in TUHH. I love studying as much as singing. I am very passionate about science. If I take music as full time, I would not be able to pursue my Masters which I really want to. So I keep uploading 2 videos every month and I make it a point that both go hand in hand. As i told you, if I like a song, I keep listening to it while solving or doing homework so that I get a hold on that song. As and when I get time, I record a song and shoot it the same evening.
5- How is life as a You tuber? Tell us about your experiences?
6– What are the initial difficulties a YouTube artist faces? How did you take up that challenge?
You wont believe, when I uploaded my first video. I Had no subscribers, so I kept refreshing the video every minute to see how much viewers I have. I had refreshed it so many times, that I myself viewed it 300 times. YouTube had a limit earlier, I dont no if its still there. From one device only one view is counted or something like that. So after 300, the view never increased. It would only become 301 when actual other 300 people view it. And it took 1 long month to do so. I have been on YouTube for the past 4 years but active since one year. I know what it is like to have 2000 subscribers. I know what it is like to have 3000 views on a video. I used to be very happy when my video crossed 1000 !Last year this time, I had 10,000 subscribers and now I have 70,000. I respect the numbers. Each view, each like, each subscribe makes me happy. There is a lot of competition these days. You can find 100’s of youtube singers. To stand out among them is very difficult. Every person has their own ability and to be that one, whom people would always want to listen to is something for which you have to work on. I have videos with almost 2 Million views and even videos which is still 30,000. Not all songs become a hit. We have to know what our fans want to hear.
7- Tell us about the most memorable experience in this journey that helped you learn
I have lot of memories. Each performance, each cover has its own story. This whole journey itself is remarkable and I cherish it forever. Performing in-front of minister Dr Harsh Vardhan is one of my best memories. My performance was right before his speech. After I finished singing, when he started his speech he said it loud, ” after listening to Suprabha’s songs, I am unable to deliver my speech and I know you people will not be interested in listening to me. So how about I keep it short and then for the rest of time make her sing 2 more songs “ I was overwhelmed. He is such a down to earth and humble person.
When I first entered the hall, there were just 100 people or so and all were esteemed delegates. They all held such high position and name in the society. I thought I can no where be compared to their achievements. But the love which they showed after my performance, was really touching. They wanted to know everything about me and wanted me to do more shows in Hamburg. Then I realised that it’s not the position or money that makes you, it is your talent and personality that defines you. No matter what great heights we achieve, we should always be humble and never get the fame rule us. This is what makes us an amazing human being.
