He is a grand-disciple of Bharat Ratna Pt. Ravi Shankar and has studied from eminent Gurus of the Maihar Gharana - Pt. Balwant Rai Verma, Padmabhushan Smt. Sharan Rani and Pt. Tejendra Majumdar and Gundecha Brothers. He is also a noted speaker and has given several talks on Indian classical music on platforms like TEDx to make the younger generation more aware about classical music. He recently appeared on the popular show 'Good Day New York' on FOX5 TV channel, USA.
