His orchestration and arranging credits include the title score for the Oscar nominated Bollywood film 'Lagaan' With an engineering degree in Naval Architecture from the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, he went on to pursue his passion for music and graduated Magna-Cum-Laude with an honors degree from the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston.
