Sagarika writes “I started performing on stage at two and half years of age, and through the years I have won numerous certificates and Awards. I have always been very passionate about mixing the styles and sounds of Western music with Indian music, a fusion.”
As she grew older she was told that the only way to go forward in the music industry was to have top quality studio recordings and very expensive videos. Sag was also told that a tiny part of any success was down to sheer luck. Being an indie artist she felt pulled towards other indie artists, musicians and songwriters who like herself could not afford to spend huge amounts of money to fulfill their musical dreams. That was why she formed Wild Blossoms, the World’s First Internet Girl Band.
Her dream is to sing and perform, but she also feels that in a small way she is bringing like minded people together. Through her work she is showing the world that if you have passion for something, the boundaries can be crossed.

On April 2014, due to her achievements and humanitarian works, Sagarika was honored and awarded as the ‘WOMEN ROLE MODEL AWARDS’ and felicitated with certificate and trophy for her outstanding contribution to the society through her online musical collaborations worldwide.
These causes are close to her heart and if she can help because of her own success in music, then how wonderful that would be. Music can touch people, and she can only hope that this is a dream she can achieve. Some of her songs were written specifically for these causes. In music, Sag hopes that she can bring awareness to the needs of others in some small way.
