Guwahati, Mar 2 (UNI) Zee TV's new crowned ''Li'l Champ'' Anamika Choudhury could be the happiest person after winning the title last night, but not all are sharing the same euphoria in her hometown Mariani.
Even as the entire Assam erupted in joy over the little singer's success, her grandmother was perhaps the only person, whose joy was mingled with sorrow.
The 77-year-old fragile woman could not bless Anamika in person when she visited home a week ahead of the finale as the budding star's travel itinerary had no time to call upon the granny, who live in dire conditions with her two youngest sons.
Grandmother Pratima Prabha, not one to complain, was all praise for the star of the family and said, ''In am delighted at her victory. May she reach new heights of success and fame.'' However, a sense of sorrow was palpable on the wrinkled face when she added, ''Anamika may not have come to seek my blessings, but I will always bless her from distance.'' Anamika's father is the second son of Pratima Prabha and though the old lady doesn't mention it, a sense of being unwanted by her son during this moment of great joy has sprinkled sorrow in her pleasure over Anamika's success.
