Comedy has the ability to saw harshest of truths without creating any animosity in the room. And to do this very beautifully we had Stand-up comedian Rajat Chauhan who performed his incredible set and left us with one amazing evening with nothing but good humour.
We spend our life listening to this artist creating music that brings so many emotions to us. Some songs bring back memories; some give us feelings of happiness, of sadness, or of motivation.
