Ventriloquists in India – Ramdas Padhye and His Family

Satyajit Padhye

Over on the other side of the world from us there thrives a dynasty of ventriloquists in India. Ramdas Padhye with his family of puppeteers and ventriloquists are very talented.

One of his son’s, Satyajit, a budding ventriloquist in his own right, has compiled information and pictures about ventriloquism in India and the three generations of ventriloquists and puppeteers in the Padhye family.

We asked Ramdas if we could share it with you, the readers of Ventriloquist Central and he said yes, so here it is.
