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 Satish, 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.
