Adrian Pradhan shines in Darjeeling Winter Festival 2015
As the much-awaited Darjeeling Winter Festival-2015 kicked off to a flying start at Chowrastha here yesterday, the crowd jumped in joy, even as noted singer of the popular band, 1974 AD, Adrian Pradhan, kept the excited revelers on their toes as he belted out his popular numbers, one after the other.
Though it was a cold winter’s evening in Darjeeling, Mr Pradhan’s fans said they could not afford to miss the golden opportunity to see him performing on stage, live.
“It’s cold and I am not keeping well, but how could I miss Adrian’s performance?” said Pragya Rai, a 19-year-old-girl from Darjeeling, when asked how excited she was to see the singer, songwriter and composer in her hometown.
Rahul Lama, another fan of Mr Pradhan, said: “I was sleeping at home, but when I heard Adrian was performing, I rushed to the fest. He has been my inspiration since long.”
Not only his fans, but the star himself was seemingly excited. “I feel lucky to be able to perform at the winter fest here, and I am really looking forward to the show,” he said as he was about to hit the stage.
“This is my first solo performance in Darjeeling,” he added.
Mr Pradhan said he is presently working on a Nepali album, which will be his 6th solo album, and it will include almost all his hits.
“The album is releasing on 18 August,” he said. He further said that he has plans to release an album of Hindi songs, as “the Hindi song I had recently released on Radio Misti in Siliguri has gained popularity.”
Organised by the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) in collaboration with the state government, the winter festival is the fourth one in Darjeeling.
People from all walks of life said they always look forward to the festival in the town.
“The winter fest adds charm to Darjeeling and it is a source of entertainment for people who don’t go anywhere during the biting cold winter days,” a shopkeeper at Dr Zakir Hussain Road here, meanwhile, said.
Fabian and his friends from Germany said they have just arrived in Darjeeling, “and to be welcomed by a fest like this, it feels great.”
Darjeeling as a popular tourist destination is also attracting celebrities, of late. Noted Bollywood singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya and his family were here for three days very recently. He roamed around Mall Road and was seen enjoying a cuppa at the Golden Tips tea boutique at Chowrastha.
“The beauty of Darjeeling is so enchanting that I have decided to visit Darjeeling every year from now onwards. This is my first visit here,” Mr Bhattacharya told reporters.
Ashish Vidyarthi, a popular actor known for his work in Bollywood, Tollywood and Telugu films, also visited Darjeeling this week with his family.
