During his school days, earned his name as a good painter and used to gift his paintings, sketches of cartoon characters to his friends. ‘I used to think that I would be a very good artist in my future. But my life had something different to give me' shares Nima. Along with his hands in colours and brushes, he was inclined towards music and singing and dancing were his hobbies being Michael Jackson, Narayan Gopal and Gopal Yonzon as his greatest inspirational figures. ‘The very first musical album that I brought was KK Cale’s Special Edition' – Nima. Nima wanted to be a martial art professional. ‘Bruce Lee’s movies have always been fascinating to me'. Nima with his talent in arts and paintings also learnt Thanka Painting from his father.

After completing his SLC from Shree Geeta Maata High School, Swayambhu, he was fortunate to get acquainted with his brother’s friend, Rabi, Saroj and Bire who were musically befriended. They used to get together and jam most of the time as a result of which Nima joined the group and learned to play and sing with them. Following his quick learning, he joined the band as the vocalist in 1991. ‘Musu Musu Hasi Deu from The Himalayan Band was the very first song that I performed on stage’. They named the band The Bass, and worked very hard who also started to appear before local concerts in colleges, schools and music shows.

Many aspects of life were hampering their interest in music, lack of media support and capital being the major reasons. The band did not come up with a record and received no help from others. After the disbanding of The Bass, Nima met one of his friends, Jyoti Ratna Bajracharya, who asked Nima to form a band with some of his friends and formed the band The Peace subsequently. Nima joined the band on vocals, Jyoti on drums, Puru on Bass and Dipesh on lead guitar and Sailendra on rhythm guitar.
