Winning something once could be considered luck but twice can only mean talent.

 

Winning something once could be considered luck but twice can only mean talent.

That’s exactly what Arvin Prasad is – a talented young man – who has won Radio Rishtey’s Best Kirtan Artist award the second time round.

The Year 13 student of Shiri Guru Nanak Khalsa College said: “I would like to thank all the people who gave likes and commented on my video that was put up on Radio Rishtey page on Facebook which indicated that my talent was the best.”

Kirtan is a devotional song, typically about the life of Krishna, in which a group repeats lines sung by a leader.

The 17-year-old says he has been practicing on the Kirtan since he was six-years-old.

The aspiring software engineer said if anyone has talent in art and music, they should believe in oneself and develop it.

Radio Rishtey founder, Shivam Lal who recently completed Year 13 at Labasa Sangam College said Arvin had more than 200 likes and comment on his video.

This, he said, was the highest among the 15 artists who participated in the competition.

“We began with the Kirtan competition last year where we provide a platform for the youth to showcase their talent especially on Kirtan and let the people all over the world hear their voice,” Mr Lal said.

 

“Radio Rishtey was founded in 2016 and after receiving so many support we decided to develop the Kirtan competition in different categories so that people can participate.”
