Manoj Murali moved to Shantiniketan when I was about eight. Both our parents are dancers and my father, Kalamandalam Muralidharan joined Vishwa Bharati University as the Kathakali guru. Besides Manisha who is five years my junior, we also have a brother Manish. The three of us have always been close ? even taking singing classes together, but Manisha and I have always enjoyed a special bond. She’s been a constant support for me ? be it professionally or emotionally. In fact, I’ve come to depend on her so much that I can’t bear to think of the time when she gets married.As kids, I remember our mother taking us to perform at various Durga Puja cultural programmes around Shantiniketan. We’d travel by train and more often than not, it was difficult to get a seat. So Manish, Manisha and myself would break into song ? believe me, that was great way of landing a seat.
