Utkarsh K. Nemade - Life in Tune

India has a mine of artists, there is no shortage of diamonds that have excelled in many fields such as music, dance, handicrafts, sports. A similar record has been recorded in the name of a farmer's son in a banana field. The record for the Youngest Composer for musical set by Adam Lorinz (age 18) in Hungary in 2002, is broken by Utkarsh K. Nemade (age 17) of Khirdi in Jalgaon Maharashtra & set up a Record in Guinness Book of World Records.

Team Stay featured is Extremely thankful to Writer Manoj Shirsath for Sharing this story.

In December last year, Prince Norris (London), Managing Director of the Guinness Book of World Records, organized online competition in association with the Indian Academy of Music & Drama. In this competition, Utkarsh chose Hindustani tabla and accompanied by classical music for 3 hours and 57 minutes in a row, breaking the world record of Adam Lorinz of Hungary for 2 hours and 46 minutes.

Man does not have to be old to grow up, but his work has to be big. Utkarsh has proved this. At the age of 17, he entered the Guinness Book of World Records and introduced his work to the world. In other words, while on the threshold of the 20th century, prosperity has made the world a better place. As much credit goes to his parents who stood firmly behind him, to his mentors who guided him, and to his grandparents who loved playing music as a child.

All these successes are not mine alone but of India and the entire state of Maharashtra. I have reached the pinnacle of this success today thanks to my parents who stood firmly behind me and guided me.
