Whistling talent

THIS WAS an occasion where one could get away with loud whistling without being considered rude. It was an event organised here by the Indian Whistlers

Association to discover ``whistling talent'' .

Some whistled classical numbers and others latest Hindi movie hits and some event attempted their own improvisations. The one emerged right on top among the participants was eight-year-old Pooja who whistled her way through that Bollywood hit, ``Dhoom Machale Dhoom.''

This girl often gives performances on the stage and was unfazed by the considerable competition at this event.
