Rashmi Nandi, his mother, said: "We exactly don't know when he picked up the drum. Though his father plays drum we never thought that our son would also be in this field. He learned it while his father was teaching the drum to his students. And, one day we realized that he plays drum with the right rhythm."
Anshuman recently bagged the national award for exceptional achievement in the field of music at an event in New Delhi.
He spends most of his time with drumsticks rather than toys.
Biswajit Nandi, his father, said: "I am very proud to say that today I am known as Anshuman's father. Where ever he performs there is a huge crowd. In the future, if he wants to continue with his drumming, I will definitely support him to continue along with his education."
Anshuman has appeared in reality shows such as India's Got Talent, SA RE GA MA PA and many others.
His success is a source of inspiration for other children in the state.Watch Anshuman play drums in this video.
