Saumitra Mathur was born and raised in India. From an early age he was inclined towards music and arts. He started his career with teaching web, graphic and multimedia tools at a prominent design institute in late nineties and specialized in print design and CD ROM presentations. Following a successful two years in the institute he moved to Rang Puhar Performing Arts, who specialize in cultural exchange programs all over the world and is in operational relations with UNESCO.
