Sayantani Das - Voice of Orissa

Sayantani Das, has emerged as the latest heartthrob in Orissa. She is the idol for the new generation youth. For the first time of the history of Reality Musical Show on TV, a girl from Orissa manged to make the cut and has been doing exceptionally well. Sayantani Das is one of the 24 contestants that are participating in the Star Voice of India 2008. Each contestant represents his/her state and Sayantani produly represents her state Orissa or Odisha.

Sayantani is only 20-year old and is currently studying in the first year of graduation with English Honours. She comes from an educated family. Her father is a banker, while her mother is a homemaker. Her only sister is studying computer engineering. Sayantani was born in 29th February 1988, which means she can celebrate her birthday only once in every four years. Sayantani is born to Bengali parents, but she is well versed in Oriya language.

Sayantani Das loves her father more than anything else. "I am here at Voice of India platform to fulfil my father's dreams", says Sayantani. She has only one idol - his father. Sayantani loves to listen to songs of Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Sonu Nigam, Sunidhi Chauhan, Chitra and Shreya Ghoshal. Her favourite music directors include Shankar Ehsaan Loy, AR Rehman, Vishal Shekhar and Sandeep Shandilya.

Sayantani rates Bombay, Roja as her favourite films. She dreams to sing for Kajol, Vidya Balan, Amrita Rao and Konkona Sen Sharma. She loves food with chocolate flavour, Chicken Tandoori and Kababs. Her attitude says about her confidence level. "I don't have any fashion icon. Rather, I could be a fashion icon for someone else", says Sayantani.

So far, Sayantani has been doing very well on the Voice of India platform. It would be interesting to see how she is going to fare on the next episodes. The road is not easy. But she looks confident and energetic. She just wants concentrate in her songs and extent her dominance over others. Can Sayantani make it? Only the time will tell, but she needs the support of every single citizen from Orissa. Let's support our own Sayantani Das, who has made us and our state proud.

I don't think she is not well versed in Oriya, at least she never appealed for support in Oriya. Anyway it doesn't matter, whether one is Oriya or not.Let the best person win.BTW Shraddha was much better and should have stayed.

I am a big fan of music. Sayantani has a very unique and melodious voice, she however lacks experience and trainig. I found none of the judges has any praise or support for her. It seemed like the judges have their picks from the day one the show began. I think Starplus should have a policy where they/judges spend considerable amount of time and mentor the contestants.

Sayantani has proved herself to be one of the best by cementing a spot in top seven. This is just the beginning, long a way to go. Sayantani has a bright future ahead. Good Luck
