"Why are we here and even if we know
about it, are we really here?" That's VeHaan, in search
of the truth. A songwriter, composer, singer, and a soloist.
Always intrigued by the eventualities of life, he is trying

Chattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Orissa. His childhood was not

time radio was his prime link to the world outside- musically.
He enjoyed listening to songs, compositions and was especially
attracted to rhythm and harmonies in them. He wanted to know
about them- what instruments were being played and how it was
all created. Most of his questions remained unanswered.
He went on to study Indian classical music.. He continued his
quest for expanding his musical horizons, studied various music
forms and listened to artists from around the world. Listening,
as he says, has been his best teacher.

the basics of life and how we try to deal with them. They reflect
happiness, joy, sorrow, pain - their different kinds and the
magnanimous presence, in various forms. They talk about everybody's
tryst to survive and yet find out the loopholes to celebrate.
He celebrates life through his music. When you hear his songs,
they can trigger an array of questions yet will be able to soothe.
