Sorbi Dev Burma (24)
Profession/ Education: I just finished graduation in Arts. I was trying for admission for MBA, but now I am concentrating on this.
Background: My parents did not allow me to participate in the first season of Indian Idol. I had to complete my graduation, so I waited. Now that I am through with my graduation, I thought I should participate. I am not a trained singer.
My parents are in government jobs. My father is a Zonal Development Officer and my mother is a Child Development Project Officer.
I was interested in singing at the age of four and participted in singing contests. But until I came here, I never thought classical singing was so important. Now I realise there are so many talented singers and all are totally engrossed in singing. I am nowhere compared to them. I am scared, but ever since I passed the gala round, I am confident.
Strongest competitor: Remo Ghosh and Kapil Thapa will get maximum votes. Bhavya Pandit and Prashanjit are my toughest competitiors.
What will you do with the prize money if you win? I am not sure of winning. There are many talented people here.
