A Special girl, Tejaswini, sings at Sa re ga ma pa

There are many reality shows which showcase mostly commercial things. Saregamapa is special in my eyes. One, it brings real musical talent and whatever people may say, in the end only good singers go out as winners!

But even my greatest loyalty to this musical program could not have prepared me for this surprise. Generally, and mostly the film stars come to the show to promote their movies or albums, but here was 2007’s most successful Bollywood star, Akshay Kumar, talking about a special girl. She is 18 but she still has a brain development of a 4 year old in social skills. She could not speak until she was 12 years. She used to listen to movie songs and be in her own world. Then at the age of 12, she started singing (without having spoken a word until then!). And SING Tejaswini did!

Akshay came to showcase this unfortunate but very specially talented girl. She remembers at least 200 songs by heart and can sing them amazingly! It is difficult to watch all this with dry eyes!

Here are two parts of the videos with her.
