My Journey as a Composer

I wanted to be a music director since very young. I wanted to compose Ad jingles. My favorite ad jingles are "Nerolac","Nescafe","Breeze".
Currently, I want to grade music directors on the basis of melody making capacity. My grades are:-
1. Pyarelal
2. SDBurman
3. Shankar, Laxmikant
I have excluded south Indian music directors.
Do I fall in this gold, silver and bronze categories? No.
I feel it took 8 years for Laxmikant to become a prolific composer. It is just a hint. I am not sure about it.
I took about 12 years to become a decent composer.
When does an aspiring music director become a real composer? The answer is Calendar song by Boney-M. Yes, when words are made to music.

My two taals in Dafli

I have already demonstrated singing with dafli abilities. I began with a Kalyanji Anandji song for reasons best known to most of us. The second video was Rajesh Roshan songs. Because he is a genius.
Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma who creates confusions, created one more confusion by saying taal matras in Hindustani is different than taal matras elsewhere. Numberings to be precise.
My view is represented in the picture below.
I beg to differ. But I do not refuse to take order.
