God belief Staunch believer of Sri Kalki Bahwan Sri Amma Bahwan
On mimicry skills From the childhood itself I’ve started mimicry So far performed more than 7000 stage shows Done research on the art of mimicry Found special mimicry notations and mimic sound exercises. Conducting mimicry training camps all over the world Taking private classes also
Most memorable show At a public function held in Tanjore, I asked the audience to pray for rain… and I performed the sounds of rain and thunder showers, within minutes we experienced real shower on the spot. I will never forget this wonderful experience.
One day…during my morning walk, a 90 year old lady fondly called me ‘otteri nari’ and laughed like a child. During a shooting… in a forest area, I mimic some animal sounds which attracted the animals nearby and when they reciprocate immediately… the whole unit not only astonished but also terrified. The day I discovered Sri Kalki Bahwan as my God. The day I became a father of two little angels…twin girl babies after 13 years of waiting.
Daily routine Yoga for one hour (morning 4.30 - 5.30) followed by prayer…I bring all my well wishers in my mind and thank everybody.
