He is efficient at giving the main beat to a song with the help of Tabla. His fingers and hand strokes produce a very beautiful rhythm. At a very tender age, he is determined at learning Tabla and gives many hours of a day for practicing it. He is wonderful at playing different rhythmic patterns. He belongs to the Amta Gharana in Bihar and he is taking forward the family tradition and legacy of playing tabla, as his great grandfather Pt. Ramdin Pathak and grandfather Pt.

He enjoys playing Tabla and his Tabla sessions gives him immense happiness. The most memorable moment for Dakshesh’s parents is when he was 2 years old and played dholak on the stage.

When did our team ask his parents about the notion that it is correct that Child Prodigies isolate themselves from their peer mates since they have higher IQ and are busy discovering things in their zone?
They replied that they do not feel it is correct and it depends on the parents and teachers that they ensure that he feels like a normal child. The child must grow with other children and learn to interact with others in a normal fashion and humble manner.
His parents Dinanath Pathak (father) and Anupam (mother) want to ensure that he grows up in close contact with his peers. They ensure that he goes out to play with others and follow a routine to learn new things and have a normal growing-up experience with others.
He has a strong interest in different rhythms and beats. Besides this, he is engaged in different games and arts.
His parents feel no pressure or expectations from the society that may hold from Dakshesh.
