In May 2007, I was operated on in my hometown Dhaka for a polyp on my vocal cord . Even after the surgery, my voice continued to remain hoarse. I had to stop singing and started getting anxious and depressed about my voice. I had lost hope when I came across Dr. Nayak's website through an internet search. I traveled to India in December 2007 for a consultation with Dr. Sadhana Nayak. I can say I have got the right direction for getting my normal life back. After getting a detailed diagnosis and corrective voice training with Dr. Nayak, I got a comprehensive understanding of the voice with its relation to my emotions, mind and body. I learnt how to find my voice in harmony with my everyday life. I got a lot of confidence after training with Dr. Nayak which was very important for me. The training and interaction with Dr. Nayak was very inspiring. Thank you!
