Ranu Mondal And The Power Of Social Media

People are talking about Ranu Mondal, the silken-voiced singer from Ranaghat in West Bengal who used to sing on local trains and the power of social media that has now propelled her on the centre stage of playback singing and recorded albums.

The lady was singing "ek pyar ka nagma hai", the evergreen song from the Manoj Kumar-starrer "Shor", when it was video-recorded and uploaded on social media. The clip went viral immediately and created a huge sensation. People say that her voice is amazing and her rendition was impeccable. People also say that given a little training regarding the protocols of playback singing and album making techniques, this is one lady who is going to be remembered for bringing lyrics alive with her voice.

People are also appreciative of the fact that Himesh Reshammiya had the vision to call her for an audition and give her an opportunity to sing with him. They say that it the power of social media that has allowed Ranu Mondal to be discovered so quickly. They say that her story would have lived and died on the local trains in West Bengal if the Good Samaritan, and perhaps a lover of good singing, did not upload the video. They also say that this was one forward they didn't mind people making on social media. People say there are several such artists in the backwaters that need to be discovered and are sure that someone somewhere will upload their videos to bring them before the world.
