Nature compensated Jharkhand’s Tumpa Kumari, 16, who was robbed of her vision, with an unmatchable mellifluous voice.
Such is the power of her singing that barely two days after her video was uploaded on social networking sites, Facebook and Youtube casually by a group of management graduate trainees, records have started tumbling.
Till last count at 630 pm on Monday, Tumpa had fetched 2, 250, 348 views, 100, 161 likes and 118, 647 shares on Facebook. The figures were increasing with each passing minute. Besides, she has also garnered 2157 shares on YouTube.
Tumpa sings almost all the Bollywood numbers she remembers with perfection. However, the Ashiqui 2 song sun raha hun main original sung by Ankit Tiwary and Shreya Ghoshal is her favourite.
Says the school principal, Neelu Verma, Tumpa is originally from Dhanbad. Her elder sister got her admitted to the residential school after learning that children with visual impairment are taken care of free of cost here.
“We rehabilitate our children either by teaching computer education or singing. The day she came to us, we found Tumpa to be a gifted singer. We will be happy if the Bollywood music industry comes forward to help her hone her skills,” Verma said.
