After completing Music Course, Given trail to All the Music Directors of that Era. I still remember when I and my younger brother were performing in front of SHRI SHANKAR –JAIKISHAN at their Music Room at Famous Mahalaxmi, Suddenly Shankarji said “AAISA LAGTA HAI DO ZABARDAST BACCHE RUSSIA SE AAKAR BAJA RAHE HAIN.. ” then he called their Music arranger Mr. Sebastian and instructed him that from today onwards add them for our every Recording..” in presence of 
about 60  Musicians who were there for rehearsal. At the same time Mr.DATTARAM (Asstt. to Shri Shankar- Jaikishan )ask us to play some BANDISH (Composition) in “AIKTAAL” (12 Beats), we fulfilled  and everybody appreciated  and started clapping .
 
SHRI O.P. NAYYAR also thrilled after  listening about half an hour at his Music Room at Famous Mahalaxmi, Stood up and presented  HUNDRED RUPEE NEW NOTE with High complements  to each one and said “BETE AAJ KE BAAD JAB BHI AAPKO PATA CHALE KE NAYYAR KI RECORDING HAI TO BEDHARAK MANDOLIN LEKAR AA JAANA..’ and called his Asst. Mr. G.S. Kohli (Kaalu) and said “AAJ SE IN BACCHON KA NAAM HAR RECORDING KE LIYE LIKH LO..”

When SHRI C.RAMCHANDRA (ANNA SAHEB) listened us he was exited and presented one “BENJOLIN” (Musical Instrument ) as Gift and Added “ IS SAAZ PE BETE SIRF AAPKA HI HAQ HAI , ISE AAP HI SAMBHAALKAR RAKHIYE...and also same Benjolin I have played for his many songs. I am lucky that my Bollywoods career as a MANDOLIN PLAYER started from SHRI C. RAMCHANDRA’s Song Recording in End of Fifties.
