DJ'ing ---- DJ-ing is basically using technical instruments
to create music and mix different kinds of music in such a way
that dancers at the floor do not break their tempo. A DJ has to
be crazy enough to do a job like this, where sleepless nights
are routine, and love music to an extent where he might be playing
a song 50 times in a month and still love it.......

Remixing --- Even mother nature remixes. What am I but
a remix of genes from my mother and father? Earth, Wind, Fire
and Water come together to form various re-mixes that become the
universe. That's why I would say that when it comes to remixes,
even God is a DJ !!
DJ 360 Degrees (Documentary on DJ's), 8th
Hip-Hop Music ---- The very name describes the music...characterised
by a lot of percussion play and vocal melody.....perfect for dancing couples,
this form of music is very sensual....if you want to experience Hip-Hop....let
me take you on a trip.

On his label, JAZZY STUFF ---- Jazzy Stuff will make
available rare records......We'll also have CD Singles and promotional
LP's that bring music to people three or four months before the official
release of that song or album........I'll be supporting the DJ Industry
and the cause of music in my small way.

On DJ's Vs. Live Bands ---- There are more pubs than
talent here (Delhi), so there won't be any competition. For instance,
Bangalore has a great pub culture with both DJ's and Bands playing there.
At most places, I have seen both DJ's and rock bands getting their share
of attention. What has to be taken care of are the listeners.
The Pioneer, 5th July 2002
On Women DJ's ---- There aren't too many women Disc Jockeys
in the country..... DJ'ing is branded as a frivolous profession, and when
it's a woman DJ, her problems get multiplied. She is considered fast,
morally loose and a lot many people approach her than they would a male

Life After model Jessica Lal's Murder at a party in Delhi
---- A Killing such as this has more to do with ego and less with a party
enviroment.Whenever two people get into an argument, and one of them is
armed, it can lead to this.
The Indian Express, 12th May 1999
On young people getting closer to Discos and dancing
---- Young people nowadays have too much on their minds - Dance is the
way they like to let it out....Dance is about how you feel the music,
how the music moves you and how you express that. You don't need to have
choreographed steps or watch 50 Hindi movies to do that.
Teens Today, May 1999
On Rain and Monsoon ---- I can't wait to be drenched
and if I can share the experience with friends, it's even better. I love
the rain and what it does to people. Sure, I do get my share of rain dances
at MKOP (Jazzy's Club), but there's a difference......there's nothing
like the real thing.
The Indian Express, 16th July 1999
On Food and Cooking ---- I can eat anything - if it's
not too spicy or bland - and love trying out new cuisines..... As a Hotel
Managment graduate, I cook too. But my mother refuses to let me enter
the kitchen as she says no one can eat the food I make. She is my favourite
cook and can even tempt me into eating dishes I otherwise hate.
The Indian Express, 4th June 1999
On Education Vs. Individualism ---- A person can excel
in many things other than the written word......if a child is bad in studies
and good in sports, that (sports) should be encouraged......every child
should be allowed to do what he's naturally enclined to do.
The Indian Express, 23rd November 1999
On the Entertainment Industry in India ---- Though much
has been done in terms of increasing the quantity of entertainment activities
- from bowling to pool to multiplexes - much more needs to be done in
terms of quality........And hopefully Indian tastes, especially in bhangra-biased
Delhi, will mature.
The Indian Express, 2nd January 2000
On World Music and Future Trends ---- There is a lot
of experimentation going on in world music and it will be the sound to
swing....... The clubs are beginning to be open to new stuff and with
it, newer sensitivities among club-hoppers are growing........The city's
dj's can't get away by playing only Bhangra.
HT City, 23rd June 2001
On Relationships and the movie 'Titanic' ---- If you
expect too much out of a relationship, you'll only end up being disappointed
and hurt........Even though they come from two completely different worlds,
the lovers are able to build a bridge across their hearts.......the real
foundation of a relationship has to be based on love. And 'Titanic' has
The Indian Express, 7th December 1999
On Clubwear Trends ---- There was a time when red and
green were feminine colours. But now, men are merrily experimenting with
such hues.These days attitude is the watchword..... it's this non-conformist
attitude that reveals itself in clothing as well !
Saturday Times, Special on Times Of India.
On Male Dominance ---- It`s a man`s world, but it`s a
woman`s home where every man has to return ! I strongly believe that between
men and women, responsibilities need to be shared and divided.

On Money and Wealth Creation ---- Wealth should be created,
but carefully......... Hard work and the right approach towards money
would enable a person to create better wealth. Money is important to an
extent. It should be enough to provide a good living. But it is not a
deciding factor in my life.
Investors India, August 2002
On Techno Music ---- This music is all about high energy,
big beat, dance and expression of one's individuality.......... In the
past, people danced with their partners but a raver is absorbed in the
music........ For any music to stand the test of time, it is essential
that it should have rhythm and touch the soul.
Tehelka.com, November 2000
On Father's Day ---- I think we must celebrate it like
all the other occasions such as New Year's Day.......... There are also
the usual cards and gifts given to my father........ The day is yet another
occasion for the family to get together.
Delhi Times, 17th June 2000
On Delhi's Changing Attitude ---- Delhi is becoming more
of a party place now. People work in work time and enjoy when they ought
to. This attitude is finally here.
Hindustan Times, 13th November 1996
On winning the 'Ultimate Battle of DJ's' ---- I wanted
to have maximum fun in a short time. The crowd really freaked out on my
Pancham (mix)............. I tried another original thing that went down
well with the crowd - I rapped over 'All That She Wants' by Ace of Bass...........
Winning or losing doesn't really matter much as I was just having fun.
