After his unique 3D interactive Click Art Museum and Live Art Museum, noted artist, photographer turned actor and producer, AP Shreethar, launched his initiative 'Kids News' and 'Academy of Art and Photography'. This was launched at the Indian Public School by child protégé pianist Lydian Nadhaswaram, who won the CBS talent show- The World’s Best and $1million prize money recently.
Speaking at the event, Lydian’s dad and music composer Varshan Satish revealed that his son has never watched television programmes, YouTube or used a cell phone. “The growing age is very crucial in life. We don’t have a television at home and Lydian never even plays video games. He practises five hours a day. I did not send my son to school.
Without attending school, I have heard that legendary Sachin Tendulkar has been to many schools as the chief guest. And now, my son is here as the chief guest and addressing other children. It is a proud moment for me.”
Shreethar said, “It was my dream to build an art school of international standards and this is my humble beginning. I am happy that Lydian inaugurated my academy. I know AR Rahman sir for a long. I see the same traits of being simple, unassuming despite abundant talents of his mentor ARR in Lydian.”Lydian enthralled the kids with his performance and oratorical skills.
