I wondered why did he said so but I got even more determined to sing baba's glory and worked towards it. I got Manhar Udaas's and Hamsar Hyatt Ji's Cd's to prepare myself. I performed at uttam nagar which was my first performance in a sai bhajan sandhya and there the organiser was so happy with the performance that later he took complete expenditure to release two of my albums, Sai Ka Paigam and Sai Naam Bada Anmol.
