Shanti Sharma was born into a family that originally belongs to famous Tanjore district. Her family does not possess any belongings to music. She was born to an Army man father. She has always received guidance in education more than music. All her sisters and brothers are established in the academics line. Shanti Sharma also won the National Science Talent competition. After completing her Masters degree in Chemistry from B.I.T.s Pillani, her mother took the initiative to take her to music. Her first guru was Guru Sangameshwar who resides at Hyderabad, Indian city.

When she was asked about any one of her regret that she might have in life, she said, “I am happy I have stuck to music and not given in to the temptation of earning quick bucks by becoming a science teacher. Music, for me, is a vocation. God`s gift, which I humbly accept and nurture”. Shanti Sharma was married to Dinesh Sharma. They had one daughter and one son but the daughter died young.
