More about Shaastra

About Shaastra: I have always loved the entertainment industry, from a young age I’ve been on stage for dance or drama. This carried through to university were I graduated honours in Drama & Performance Studies and Media & Communications. I also spent over 8 years studying the oldest classical dance form Bharatha Natyam and was bestowed with the title of Kumari. Radio has been a part of my life for almost a decade and I have learned so much and met some incredible people along the way.



Radio Experience And Progression: I began my radio career as a newsreader on the community radio station Hindvani in the year 2010. Thereafter I began presenting the breakfast show for a while. Having secured a role in the Lotus FM radio drama, I then made the move to the SABC as a newsreader on Lotus FM. Within 3 months I moved to produce the Morning Rush breakfast show on Lotus FM. In 2016,  I moved over to the Desi Drive for almost 2 years before returning to the morning slot to co-host the Breakfast Express with O’Neil Nair.
