Today Rahul is one of India’s leading shadow artist. Yes, you heard it right! His show “ Shadow Tales” is making waves throughout the world. Rahul had always been inclined towards creativity since a young age.

It all started a decade back .Just out of college, he was on a flight seated next to his little sister. To keep her amused he started creating shadows of different shapes with his hands, weaving them into a story. He fell in love with what he did. That’s when the thought struck him. He decided to become a shadow artist. It did take him a while to convince his parents, about his unusual choice of profession.

There has been no looking back since then. Today his shows run to a packed house. He creates musicals bringing his shadows to life, to a thundering applause!

    Such a nice, positive tale from an admittedly morose prompt. Well done, Radhika.
