A Times of India Initiative

NEW DELHI: It wouldn’t be Christmas without carols. After all, they’re as much a part of the festival as Santa Claus and evergreen coniferous trees. And to usher in the Christmas spirit, choir groups have planned a series of concerts in the coming weeks. Open to all and free of cost, they promise to soften even the most stubborn Scrooge.

Tapas Bhardwaj (15), is the youngest member of CCM – he joined three years back – but what he lacks in age, he makes up for in talent. “I have been singing since I was in class 2, and it’s the only thing that makes me feel relaxed and ready to take on any challenge,” he says.

Tapas, who’s visually impaired, doesn’t train with sheet music. He has learning CDs made by the choir conductor, Fiona Hedger-Gourlay. But that has never held him back.
