9-year-old Svara Menon from Bangalore has etched her name in history by clinching the second place at the prestigious 46th World Whistling Championship, held recently.

Coached by the renowned whistler and two-time World Champion, Nikhil Rane (known as the Smiling Whistler), Svara competed against 125 talented participants from across the globe. In her category, she battled it out with contestants from Japan and China.

Taking centre stage, Svara enthralled the audience with two captivating performances. Her first rendition was a classical masterpiece, the Hungarian Dance No. 5 by Johannes Brahms. For her second piece, Svara switched gears to the popular sub-category, belting out the Elvis Presley classic, “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

Svara’s exceptional talent shone through, earning her the coveted second-place title in her category. Remarkably, she is the only Indian contestant this year to achieve such a feat at the World finals.

The World Whistling Championship, officially titled “The 46th World Whistlers Convention,” is a highly regarded event organised by the Japan Whistling Confederation (JWC). Svara’s remarkable win is a testament to her dedication, talent, and the exceptional coaching she received from Nikhil Rane.

This young prodigy’s achievement is a source of immense pride for India, placing the country on the map of the international whistling arena. Svara’s journey is an inspiration to aspiring young artists, proving that with passion and perseverance, anything is possible.
