joy knew no bound.... they were worried if they would fumble for they
would be meeting her for the first time.... some were
speechless.....some cried on meeting her... some were too excited to
show her their singing prowess.. some all geared to woo her by singing
her own songs...and why not... for they were meeting the VOICE OF INDIA
AMUL STAR VOICE OF INDIA Top 5
finalists: Abhilasha V, Sumitra Iyer, Mohd. Irfan, Ishmeet Singh &
Harshit Saxena recently met their IDOL ....Lata Mangeshkar to seek her
blessings and also to wish her advance happy birthday !!! She was more
than happy to oblige them, byt not only taking out time for them but
also giving them valuable tips which will help them in their singing
career. She heard them all one by one and was very happy ... in her
sweet voice she said " Sabhi Achcha Gaate Hain"... which made the top 5
finalists remember this day as a red letter day in their life !!
Ishmeet Singh , the
young lad from Ludhiana and a strong contender of the show could not
control his tears as he saw Lataji sitting right infront of him, " I
was so thrilled, nervous and excited at the same time, I couldn't
believe that I am infront of her and she is patiently listenign to
me... I just fell on her feet and took her Aashirwaad... I was too
happy that tears rolled down my eyes. "
"I was totally nervous.... rather
scared... as i thought i would not be able to sing infront of her and
fumble but as we eneterd her residence, she made us seek blessings of
Ganapati Bappa and comforted us like our mother", adds Abhilasha V, contestant of Amul Star Voice Of India.
Irfan has the best experience to share,
" I was very happy and looking forward to meet her.... yelling yapping
that I am going to meet Lataji all through I reached her place. Things
were fine till I reached her building and no sooner that we were takign
to stair to go up....God only knows what happened to me I was very very
scared and nervous almost like an exam fever !!! By this time all my
fellow colleagues came forward to tease me and enquire about my extra
enthusiasm and energy which went off by then !!!!!
For Harshit & Sumitra,
meeting her was a dream come true, but after meeting her they had to
pinch themselves to check if they were or not living in a dreamworld!!!!
