New Delhi (India), December 20: Anyone can be a DJ, but she understands how to read a crowd and keeping them on the floor is what takes years of experience.

Who is DJ Lahar?
DJ Lahar is a well-known DJ artist known all over India for her great & rocking experience in the show. She was born on 3 January 1993 in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh. Her father was a government server, so they shifted to Narmada Nagar, Khandwa. Her mother was a housewife, due to which, from childhood only, she realised that women are not only meant for household work; they can work in a society like men.
What are her qualifications?
In 2010 to pursue BE, she went to Indore. While doing BE, she thought of doing a part-time job in the event industry as an anchor. There she hosted weddings, receptions, and social events. After hosting 5 years, she decided to become a Disk Jockey(DJ). So she took professional training in DJ from Indore.
What Revolution She Brought?
DJ Lahar noticed that DJ’s image is mostly linked with clubs, so she wanted to do something out of the box. She noticed that there were many females who performed as DJs in clubs, whereas mostly males performed at weddings or on any occasion. So she started performing at weddings and occasions to fulfil the gap of female DJs in weddings because, as per DJ Lahar wedding is a very sacred occasion where two families become a part of each other, so it needs to be perfect, whether it is food, decorations, arrangements or DJ, for the proper satisfaction of the guests. So it becomes a trouble for the DJs to handle and satisfy the guests’ needs as per their mood whereas in clubs there is no one to interrupt you for your randomly played songs. Due to this, DJs mostly prefer clubs over weddings.
Why choose DJ Lahar?

She also has unique skills to convey the people who are unwilling or don’t know to dance.
What are her struggles?
We know that there are longer and darker nights before a beautiful day. The same was for DJ Lahar. In starting, she faced many taunts like female DJs are not meant for weddings and occasions. They are meant for clubs only. There were safety problems, too, because regular club DJs have proper protection from the club’s managers, but Lahar needs to perform at weddings all over India.
She faced many financial problems because the DJ equipment required was not so cheap. But taking all these problems in a positive way and dedication to not giving up made her a very popular DJ artist today.
What are her achievements?
