After her performance, Poonam from Lucknow spoke about her struggles in life. She revealed that she belonged to a middle-class family and that her father had passed away when she was young. It was her mother who worked as a domestic help to bring up Poonam. There was pin-drop silence when Poonam recalled how, at times, they had had to go on an empty stomach. Vidya was so moved by Poonam's tale that she was in tears. Everybody would agree that Poonam is a brave girl who fought against fate to reach the platform of the musical talent hunt on television. We wish that her talent and hard work take her far.
