Manasi Scott kick-started her professional singing career with Pune’s hottest rock band Dark Water Fixation that was offered an international recording contract with Sony in the 1990’s while she was still in school. With a plethora of stage performances under her belt since the age of 8 as a singer, actor, dancer and master of ceremonies, it was not long before her stage performing prowess with the band took them all over the Country. She talks to The Post India and shares her Friday plans in an exclusive interview.

What’s your weekend morning routine?
The same as the week mostly. I’ve led a very disciplined last 10 weeks.I wake up at 4.50 am and meditate and chant and then go horse-riding.When I’m in Bombay, that’s followed by a 7kms walk but in Pune I ride in the wild longer so I don’t end up walking as much. Post this, in Bombay some days I train in Muay Thai with my amazing sensei Susovan Ghosh but in Pune I do the Tibetan Rites and some yoga.Until Day 139 I had a daily live concert from home but I decided to take a short break to rest the vocal chords and wrap my recording work and try some new things. Will keep you posted!!
