“This is the story of a dream, a dream come true. My dream. It is a story which shows that when a person dreams realistically, his or her dream will come true, sooner or (as in my case) later in life. We should not put a time frame on our dreams, just keep on dreaming and most probably, even after a lapse of many years, the dream will materialise.
When I was young, in my early teens, my greatest dream was to become a singer. Needless to say this did not fall within the parameters that my parents had set for me and my brothers, in as far as our education was concerned, and my dream was shattered abruptly. But over the years my interest in song did not wane. I loved to listen to the great crooners like Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Nat King Cole and their Italian counterparts such as Domenico Mudugno, Adriano Celentano and Gianni Morandi.”
