And I was just 2 or 3.  I’d always try  to pass through his legs and he’d  clamp my  neck  as I  did so. My earliest memory  is  of me howling because my dad  wouldn’t let me pass through his legs. He  had a bike which  I loved  to take rides on.

Priyanka: As a child, I loved reading. I just loved sitting on the window and reading and watching down on the streets. My dad was in the army so we were always on the move. He taught me to drive at 13 when he’d take me to school. I was very scared of driving… My dad used to be a doctor in the army until he took voluntary retirement in 1997. He’ s a trained artiste, painter and singer. He used to be called the singing surgeon. He used to do shows for the army. My dad sings, though not professionally. I’m a big fan of my father’s singing. I love singing. Ever since I was a child, I dreamt of getting in a white gown to sing on stage like Whitney Houston. I’ve been trained in Western classical singing. I used to sing soprano in a choir.” One of my earliest memories — when I was three — is of my dad on stage looking at me and singing. If he didn’t look at me while singing I’d get extremely miffed. Sometimes he used to call me on the stage to sing an African song that I knew
