#COMPETITION: Win FIVE PAIRS of tickets to see the legend Udit Narayan and his son Aditya.

The man who defined an entire Bollywood era with his honey-tinged vocals is coming to London.  And bringing his equally talented son with him for good measure.

Bollywood legend Udit Narayan, the Nepal-born singer who gave voice to some of the industry’s biggest names – including Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar, will take to the stage this Saturday 24 October for a special concert where he will also be joined by son Aditya.

The duo will chart the evolution of Bollywood through their songs – from Narayan Senior’s work in such iconic films as ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ and ‘Dil’ through 'Raja Hindustani', ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ and ‘Rangeela’ all the way to Aditya Narayan’s pop anthems such as the infectious ‘Tattad Tattad’ from ‘Ram Leela’.

The duo have been performing frequently together since dad Udit encouraged young Aditya to take up music at the tender age of 5.

It’s all set to be a magical, family affair at The O2 in London on 24 October before father and son head over to Leicester for a concert at the city’s De Montfort Hall on 25 October.

The UKAsian is giving away TEN TICKETS to the London concert.

#Agreement: Tory and Labour messages converge as Miliband visits Swamy Narayan Temple

The Conservatives and Labour agree on precious little these days.

However, this weekend has shown that the two big parties can agree on one thing – acknowledging the fact that Britain’s ethnic minority communities remain severely under-represented in most spheres of British life.

A day after Prime Minister David Cameron admitted that more needed to be done in the battle to ensure that British institutions represented the country’s diversity, his opposite number Ed Miliband waded into the argument, appearing at the Shri Swami Narayan temple in North London clutching a hymn sheet startlingly similar to the one used by Mr Cameron.

Quite apart from the hymn sheet, Mr Miliband also brought along the heavy artillery: the temple’s magnificent innards packed with Labour’s British Asian 155mm guns, including Keith Vaz, Virendra Sharma, Sadiq Khan, Seema Malhotra, Uma Kumaran, Sadiq Khan and Tulip Siddiq among others.

Despite the surfeit of ethnic minority talent, Mr Miliband admitted that representation of minorities – especially in Parliament – remained a “challenge” and called for a “truly representative set of representatives” to serve Britain.
