Music is food for my soul and a doorway to heaven for me. As soon as I begin my 'riyaz' I'm transported into a different world, one where everything is possible.

I was 3 when I developed an interest in music. My parents recognised my talent and enrolled me in Indian Classical Music classes.

It did not matter to me or my family that I couldn't see. Hard work and dedication to my craft mattered the most. It was a wonderful feeling to perform at Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, The Voice, and Indian Idol. Then performing as a voice-over artist for the giant brand, Savlon felt incredible.

I always tried to excel at both academics and mastering my voice. I learned braille when I was a child and then moved to a conventional school to continue my studies till the 7th standard post when I joined a school for the blind. I was awarded the 'Indira Gandhi' Award by the Government of India for outstanding performance in class 10.

During my college days, I participated in a mega event by eminent newsgroup Punjab Kesari called 'Selfie With Daughter' and received an award from them.

Today, I'm working as a solo artist who manages her own brand and runs a youtube channel by the name Resham Talwar where I create covers and also work on my own singles.
