Successfully Happy

Published Friday, August 8, 2014

Been hearing and reading the word “success” a lot these days for some reason… And approaching my 46 in a month I got to thinking, at long last, about what that word means to me… When I was very young a dear friend’s mother asked me what I would like to be when I grew up, I said “I want to be happy”… I must have been about 13 but I actually said that… It must sound corny now but I had no intellectual thought in my head at the time, had nothing to prove and had not even heard Rush yet, so I was actually quite serious and not trying to be a smart arse… I think now I was right all along, well in my ambiguity if nothing else…. I mean how can one ever know what it means to reach some certain stage until one actually has got there… So me? Ya, known as India’s first metal singer, one if India’s handful of pioneering EDM DJs, the person who changed the way Indian radio stations programmed music… Yes, finally, in the last few months, I can say I am successfully happy and it was actually worth it…
