Behind this exercise lies a story. Kushal and Divyaansh are engineering students at BITS, Pilani. They were interested in the musical world but pursuing a career in engineering clearly changed the track for them. This, however, did not kill their love for the art. Using an innovative concept for budding artists- DEXTRA, a platform for all the upcoming talents in the field of creativity, they decided to give rendition to their Music.
