Young tabla prodigy enthrals CWG audience


New Delhi: With his curly locks, Keshava, a seven-year-old tabla player, mesmerized the thousands at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here Sunday during the Commonwealth Games opening.

As the event got off to a glittering start, the Puducherry boy’s fingers flew fast and furious over the tabla keeping pace with one thousand drummers.

Dressed in a silk kurta-pyjama, he was a star attraction of the “Rhythms of India” segment. Naturally, he earned a loud applause from the spectators.

Keshava began playing the tabla when he was just two years old.
