Twelve children from Chennai represented India in the competition. Harihar Prashad won the Championship in Group D (13 years and above). He had earlier won the ‘Best of the Best’ award in 2008. He trains at Kalaa Manjari, an activity centre and a Global Art franchise in Alwarpet. Four other children training at this centre were adjudged runners up in their respective categories.
