Every human being growing up, at least once thinks about the perfect wedding (men may not think and speak about it all the time but growing up they do imagine the perfect wedding with their childhood crush too).
Every child must have heard the 'Happily Ever After' stories and wished for theirs too. From huge castles to the century old temples to the long and calm beaches to mysterious islands; you just need to name it and train of thoughts start wandering the paths of imaginations with a touch of childhood dreams .
In the current scenario the hall or garden weddings are just clocked in to wrap up within the time frame to move out and getting ready for the reception which in most of the cases is on the same evening. The guests(long lost cousins, uncle and aunties and whole of neighborhood) which we want to share and celebrate our day with enter at their leisure and move out at the earliest(can't blame them they have to continue with their routine lives next morning). You click hundreds of pictures, mostly in the same positions holding on to the expressions throughout the day and post marriage re live the day with the help of photo album again and again.
Imagine a wedding being set up in place on an old yet alive temple with the ancient carvings which still look fresh and whispering the tails of arts in your ears. You are surrounded by the fresh cut flowers blossomed in the green surroundings. There is a soothing yet joyful sound of traditional instruments and you see only the number of people you can recognize and want to share your joy with away from the traffic and daily routine. You see faces who chose to be happy with your happiness and want to shower you with their blessings filled with love.
In another dream you see yourself looking into eyes of your bellowed one; standing next to the beach, blue water and ocean waves trying to reach and hold on to you but missing it out by few steps. The wind is humming the music of love binding you both in love for eternity. You wish that the sun should never set and there won't be any darkness in your relationship. That's where you want to be that is where your heart approves of your 'The Magical Day.'
Today highly skilled teams ready to hear from you to understand your dream of the special day and they will paint the picture of reality to you. You just have to name it to them (and show them how deep your pockets are) and they will give you the day you deserve all your life.
Every wedding is beautiful and mesmerizing in its own way, but what makes it special is that extra touch of imaginations and the right people to support it to make it happen.

ON YOUR MUSIC
Eight Octaves: What was it like growing up as girls interested in music?
Tanya: I was the geeky looking girl who would sing at school competitions! I’ve been singing since I was a little kid; whether it was to myself, or family or crowds. I never faced any bias. I was free to do what I wanted. I would pick up my hairbrush which I would pretend was a microphone and behaved like a rockstar! Hah!
Eight Octaves: Were your families supportive?
Tanya: I feel blessed to have such supportive parents. Never once have I been questioned for the choice I’ve made. My mom would teach me songs and prepare me for competitions. It’s my parents support that has made me what I am today.
Eight Octaves: Is music a full-time career for you?
Tanya: Now yes. I started working alongside my studies during my college days and the past few years, my only outlet to sing was at the karaoke nights I host. But I’ve quit my corporate slave days and have decided to pursue my passion for music and I can’t see myself doing anything else. So glad i took the plunge.
Eight Octaves: Do you feel it is a viable career for a women in our country?
Tanya: Absolutely. The music scenario is changing by leaps and bounds now and there are so many opportunities for women to make it a career. It ain’t easy but then nothing is right?
Eight Octaves: Who is your biggest inspiration? Any women you look up to.
Tanya: My mother. She is my source of positivity! She has taught me to do what I love and never give up. I don’t know what I would do without her.
Eight Octaves: What would be an ideal world to you?
Tanya: People just doing what they love and following what their true passion is. Everyone is stuck in the damn rat race.
Eight Octaves: What is your take on Women in the music industry in India?
Tanya: Bollywood still rules the industry here. So eventually everyone gets into playback singing since that’s where the money lies and it’s stupid to say that one isn’t interested in the money. But I’m glad that a lot of the female singers still have their bands alongside and continue to make music they believe in.
Eight Octaves: Describe yourself in 5 lines.
Tanya: I am a total people’s person. I am very planned and organized except for when it comes to cleaning my cupboard. I talk a lot and damn, I need more than 5 lines to describe myself!
Eight Octaves: What clothes do you ideally wear as a group?
Tanya: I wear what I want to. I love to stand out. Can’t do the whole trend thing. The boys just throw on a pair of jeans and a t shirt! I’ve been trying to style them but alas! It’s a tough task!
Eight Octaves: Are all of you the same person you are on stage or do you have two separate identities?
Tanya: We are just the same. We are as goofy and quirky as we are in real life. And I love that about us.
Eight Octaves: Any spot you go to to make music?
Tanya: Usually my house.
ON THE BAND
Eight Octaves: Why form a band?
Tanya: Why not? We wanted to make good music and so we got together!
Eight Octaves: What made you choose the genre you did?
Tanya: Our genre is quite mixed up – it’s a bit of rock n roll, a bit of blues, a bit of alternative. We all enjoy this so hence!
Eight Octaves: What do you guys enjoy doing in your free time?
Tanya: Make more music!
Eight Octaves: How much has life changed since being noticed?
Tanya: Not really. More facebook friend requests I guess. But ya, we are just taking each day as it comes…
Eight Octaves: Where does the band see itself in 5 years?
Tanya: As one of the top bands of the country and of course doing international gigs!
Eight Octaves: Your idols?
Tanya: Too many to name. Really. Too many to name.
Eight Octaves: The band is made up of?
Tanya: Me- vocalist, Karan Malhotra - Lead Guitarist, Akshay Johar- Bass guitarist, Bhairav Gupta- Drums
