Lydian Nadhaswaram, a 13-year-old musical prodigy on Thursday won 1 million dollars on a US-based show ‘The World’s Best’. Lydian gave a splendid performance; he played two pianos at a time at an impeccable speed, blindfolded. I have been playing the Piano for four years. I got inspiration from my sister, who plays the piano and my father, who plays keyboards. I’m happy that I won this prize, said Lydian. My parents home-school me so that I can solely concentrate on learning piano. I want to be the world’s best composer, he added. Lydian’s father, Varshan Sathish, who is a composer of late Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalitha’s funeral song said: I can’t contain my happiness. He started singing at an early age. I knew he would become a great composer one day. Apart from 50 other judges, the show was judged by Faith Hill, RuPaul Charles and Drew Barrymore.
