Neha Bhasin: I used to wear leather pants to LSR, and was still accepted

Neha Bhasin may have settled in Mumbai now, but the memories of the capital are close to the heart of this Delhi-born singer. On a recent visit to the city, he revisited the streets of Defense Colony and reminisced about South Delhi. “I dropped out of school in 2000, and had money for cafes and not everything [a thing back then], Today’s kids go to popular coffee shops, and I think, ‘Their parents give them money for so much coffee!’ we are 5’s coffee, 2 samosas [lete the]They also look like mangoes to my parents (laughing) I grew up near Moolchand on chole kulche and a lot of street food,” recalls the 39-year-old, who is popular for songs like heart murmurs And turned the world ,sultan, 2016).

Ask her about her school days, and she reveals that she used to be a “poor student” until class X. “And suddenly in class XI and XII, I did really well. I topped my class in 12th! This is how I entered Lady Shri Ram College (LSR) in 2001. I had topped the elective English, and secured the second highest rank in the ICSE board in India! My mother said, ‘Now you have to do something’. I was like, ‘I still have to do music’. music was number one for me [priority],

Bhasin also revealed his favorite hangout spots. In addition to the popular eateries that all the nice kids went to, they had a special haunt: “I used to go to this place behind my school where my friends smoked. I was not a smoker, so I used to share it with kala namak.”

Before becoming part of the girl group Viva, she studied Sociology (Hons) for two years at LSR, and feels it is one of the “best colleges”. Despite her initial hiccups in going to girls’ college, she spent a lot of time with friends. “I was from a co-educational school and my friends were friends. So to get into a college with women of all shapes and sizes—5,000 women on the first day of college—I felt like I’d faint,” she tells us, “and then fell in love with college, it was so beautiful. Time. I only spent two years there, but it was the best time of my life.”

She has so many great memories from #CampusKeDin that she feels compelled to add: “LSR is a place where people accept you for who you are. It was really bohemian. I kind of like this leather and chains Dresser. I used to wear leather pants in college! I looked foreign but spoke desi. It was accepted. For me, LSR was the beginning of feminism, which meant uplifting each other.
