A collection of anecdotes by individuals, just like us, doing what they love
"I should start by thanking my stars that I was born in such a wonderful, artistic family. My grandmother, Jalabala Vaidya, is a stage actress and one of the most amazing women i have met. She performed The Ramayana solo on Broadway playing all 22 characters herself and my grandfather, Gopal Sharman, a brilliant playwright and musician, was the genius behind the script that took this play across the world. My mom, Anasuya Vaidya, did lights and technicals on Broadway when she was 14 and my dad, Ajay Shetty, is a cinematographer. I have grown up with these legends! They've taught me all I know about music and acting. My grandfather built the Akshara Theater in Delhi where I have been learning and performing my entire life."
