The suspense for the eager Sahu Nagar residents got over in the late afternoon as they learnt of the news through those who attended the final recording at the Famous Studio earlier in the day. But they were still keen to watch Abhijeet's final performance and celebrate in the evening.
The number of people increased steadily, as crowds gathered to greet his family.
Everyone in the neighbourhood and the surrounding areas knows Abhijeet now. Half a kilometre away from his home, a young boy guided this journalist with great accuracy, and added the further statement: "Ask anybody where Abhijeet lives!"
Sahu Nagar is more than festive, with all the locals warmly joining in, and considering themselves a part of the celebrations. People enchanged notes about Abhijeet's past, and his great success.
