Balamurali was in the verge of retirement from music at his age 21
Balamurali was given paid
concerts from his early age of 13-14 years. He was a full time sought after
artist for around 7 years, and suddenly his voice gave trouble. He had to
cancel the recitals. He and his family members thought that his career as a
musician came to an end already. He was married and had two children by then.
His father was deeply regretting that he had not sent Balamurali for normal
education that could fetch a job. Balamurali had no certificates, whatsoever. Fortunately,
soon later he regained his voice with more mature timbre.
