Claim to fame
An indipop singer with albums like Dhuan, Talaash and Paree to her credit.
How Net-savvy are you?:
I'd give myself a 3 because there's a long way to go and lots to try out online. So far, I email, surf and chat on ICQ with my siblings all over the world. They're currently trying to teach me the SMS feature on ICQ, so that we can keep in touch anytime.
How often do you surf?:
I check mail daily for about ten minutes. My Internet time is very precious to me - I hate junk mail, and delete forwards unless sent by someone really close.
I also check out music news online. But my friends and siblings generally email links of articles or clippings they know I'd find interesting.
As for music, my PC's full of Billy Joel's lyrics, interviews and music. I have checked out a lot of Web sites of artistes like Jennifer Lopez and Natalie Imbruglia, that were very interesting and informative. But I really enjoyed the gimmicks on Janet Jackson's site. There were small figures that danced every time you moved the mouse over them!
What do you hate most about the Internet?:
I'm very impatient. I hate the process of connecting and waiting for pages to download while sitting idle in front of a blank screen.
Also, I am against music sharing file services like Napster, Audio Galaxy, etc. I think they are illegal and should not be propagated because artistes should be paid for their work.
Your idea of a perfect Web site?:
I'm thrilled with mine. I spent a lot of time doing it up in a specific colour theme, putting up my songs of albums that aren't available in the market. I feel that I now reach a larger audience who replies, samples my music and even offers their critiques.
I enjoy the feedback that comes in. Especially when fans write in from all over the world. One of them even sent me his pictures via email.
Have you ever bought or sold anything online?:
Though I browse Amazon.com regularly, I'm very orthodox: I still prefer my bookshop round the corner to buy my wares.
Whom would you like to chat with online?:
