Excerpts from an IANSlife chat with Meet Brothers:

Q: How did you discover your own voice? How was it like initially?

A: We always loved singing. What drove us a long way was our passion for music and perseverance. It’s very important to keep practicing and being patient. Also grabbing the right opportunity is a must.

Q: You’re judging the Smule Mirchi Cover Star Season 3; What are your expectations from fresh talent? Apart from the virtues of good singing, what other qualities go into the making of a successful singer?

A: Like every year, we are expecting some really great and fresh voices from across the country. Music is very subjective and picking up just one voice is very difficult. Along with singing, what also matters is your persona, how are you when you are off the stage, how are you carrying yourself, your personality when you are singing is what matters a lot.

Q: Compared to a few years back, do you think it’s now easier for hidden talent to come up to the surface and get noticed?

Q: What was the concept behind it? Can you give us some insights into the selection criteria?

A: To create a healthy space for fresh voices. We are here to find out India’s next singing sensation, a voice that connects with us. The first one is quality of voice, then the personality of the singer, choice of song, and an overall vibe that the contestant gives. (IANS)

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month.

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, who is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month, said on Sunday that it was a difficult process to decide whether to undergo a third right-knee surgery after having two last year. But following Wimbledon, where he was "really unhappy" with his performance in reaching the quarterfinals, Federer opted to go through with it.

Federer, who made a late decision to attend this year's Laver Cup in Boston -- a tournament held between teams from Europe and the rest of the world -- said on the sidelines of the event that the recovery and rehabilitation are "going to take me a few more months and then we'll see how things are at some point next year". "The reception I've received, everybody is so upbeat that I'm here. They wish me all the best and they don't even see the crutches. They just want me to be good again and enjoy the weekend," Federer said in an interview for the event with former world No. 1 Jim Courier.

"I've seen some incredible tennis, some great matches and it's been wonderful. I'm really happy I made the trip," the winner of 20 majors was quoted as saying by On why he opted for a third surgery, the tennis ace said, "I was just nowhere near where I wanted to be to play at the top, top level. But I tried my best and at the end... too much is too much. Now I've just got to take it step by step," Federer said.
