05 September, 2000 was the day when I performed in front of my class [I was in second year of engineering then]. We had organized a small event in the class on behalf of “Teachers’ Day” [and I suspected, most of us did not want the lectures that day].
I performed for the first time in front of an audience. I played the Guitar & sang two songs. People didn’t believe I could sing & play Guitar (nobody knew at that time). They loved it! I got ‘once more’ for both the songs!
I’ve performed in front of bigger audience (multiples of thousands) since then, so many times. It feels great. But had I not performed on 5 September, 2000, I’d have never had guts to perform live.
