The dhol player holds that playing the instrument is indeed not easy for girls in a society like ours. “Women are not allowed to play at shrines. When I started out, my family and relatives discouraged me and that was quite depressing,” she recalls. However, Maryam stuck to her guns and almost three years ago, renowned dhol player Gunga Sain admitted her as a disciple and with his help she managed to make her dream come true. She also told about her Friends views, “My female friends always ask me how I am able to play the dhol for hours at a stretch". I think there’s more to it than the physical aspect. If you are able to connect with the instrument on a spiritual level, you forget everything else. [2] Difficulties in Career
