Anamika was giving out best performances week after week and along with accolades from the judges, she was also getting the highest votes from public. But this week during the Friday’s elimination shoot, this girl bogged down with emotions and became immune towards the whole system of SaReGaMaPa L'il Champs.
Probably what she saw and heard last week about Smita had hit her heart deeply. Anamika went silent and isolated herself from all after the incident. And when it was time to declare the eliminated contestant for this week, Anamika couldn’t control her emotions. According to her she no longer believed in friends, judges, mentors, and the whole system around her. To her it seemed everything had become fake, unrealistic, and materialistic. It was nothing but a money-making business and they were used as mere tools for churning money. She felt it was just a platform where emotions had no meaning. Everyone on the sets was shocked with her out-burst. On asking her about her behavior Anamika clarified, “Actually last week Smita got eliminated and her father had taken so much tension that he was admitted to the hospital. So I got a fear about my family too if I fall into such a situation. So I thought better to quit now than getting eliminated.”
She was on the verge of leaving the contest as she felt that she can't be part of a system that she doesn't believe in. “I was not ready to perform but later on my mom and dad told me not to worry. After all it’s a competition and only one can be a winner,” Anamika clarified. In every phase of life the competition is getting tougher and looks like even these reality shows are not untouched anymore. “I’m telling this to all parents - Don't keep too much expectation so that later on it hurts you. After all it's a competition and losing and winning is the part of the competition,” was the message little Anamika had to give to all.
So do we now see the same Anamika back on the show? “I am bit relaxed now after assurance from my parents that they are going to take it as a game. I am back in action and you will all see Anamika rocking the floor this Saturday. Now winning and losing is not on my list, I just have to perform best,” was the spirited reply from this small girl whose mother feels her daughter has suddenly become too big.
As Anamika said parents need to understand this and make sure not to put more pressure on their wards or even themselves. To win, you need to have your share of luck too, so it’s always in the best interest not to keep much expectations and take them as mere games.
