The beginning ...

If you are imagining Vidhu Prathap's home to be a sangeetha sabha of veteran carnatic exponents, forget it! His father Prathapan was not muscial in any out-of-the-ordinary way nor his mother Laila. His appuppan (the Late Chief Judicial Magistrate, TVM), grandad on his mother's side, however dabbled a little.

Because or inspite of all this, they let the kid take up music lessons when he was 3 years old. His elder sister was already doing that and together they went out to music competitions. The kid pair used to visit their dad in Abudhabi - and go to every competition they could find. And they won prizes.

Vidhu excelled in several art forms - mono-act, recitation, light/classical music etc. More prizes stacked up in his room.

Skip, skip ... end of the begininng.

Will be publishing more pics - the idea is to make him look less like a celebrity and more like a ordinary guy with a great talent, so we are looking for as casual pics as possible.
