It’s said that ‘God help those who help themselves’. Exactly, same a lad thought years ago and according to his thinking, he started to work. Now we all know him as Singer Vishal Srivastav who then, have been just a Vishal, a tea boy or an Auto driver.
If i say you that an auto boy turned to a known singer in Bollywood industry then it would not be a shocking but if you would come to know that a boy who lost his mother at the only age of 8 months and still he worked for his dreams and became a Bollywood singer then hundred percent it would be shocking.
Vishal Srivastav who was born in 23rd September 1983 at Azadpur in Delhi and lost his mother at 8 month age only. He had to leave his house at 9 years age. Thus that 9 years boy who should have books in his hand, had started to do work in a tea stall. He got only a single bread a tea in the returns of his work on tea stall. Sometimes Vishal had to sleep without having meal. When he realised it’s not possible to live only on this tea stall then he started to learn to drive Auto Rickshaw. He used to drive auto rickshaw in day light and did work at tea stall in night. Even Vishal used to buy vegetables and books , pen in buses and trains.
Bad time tried a lot to stop Vishal but he didn’t stop to work and continue worked for his dreams. Vishal wanted to make his wife a teacher. As we asked him about inspiration for singing, he replies when he was a child, he used to listen Shri Kumar Shanu songs and tried to sing, Thus he’s totally inspired by him and his songs. Shanu Da is his ideal and he really wish to meet him once.
Vishal couldn’t study due to his economic problems. He only studied his 2-4 classes in a small Manchhna near to Mainpuri. He said that man should never give up, he can get anything if really works for it.
Vishal Ji, We really appreciate your hard work and wish to see you on top of the success.
