My advice to children is 'Never stop learning': Ronu Majumdar

MUMBAI: “The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country,” this famous quote by Jawaharlal Nehru stands true. In fact, this Children's Day famous flautist Ronu Majumdar explains this very concept keeping the singing reality shows in mind.

Majumdar was the jury of the latest Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs, where he had the opportunity to interact with the young talent one-on-one. “I have been in Sa Re Ga Ma’s Jury earlier also but I had one of the best experiences in this season. I mentored Anjali Gaikwad -- the winner -- and it was great to have a father-daughter bond with her. Also, I have learned a lot of things from the kids, I also learned to be a kid again,” said the flute maestro.
Being with the new generation, Majumdar has observed many things about them in terms of how they adapt music.
“Children today at a very young age have too much of talent. I wasn't this talented as a youngster. I always wondered how that little girl -- Anjali -- has so much of talent. Mentoring her did bring tears in eyes, many times, as her dedication touched my heart,” he added.
Most reality show contestants disappear after their short-lived fame. But, they do need to find the right path and to this Majumdar stated, “This is not a reality show it is a school to learn. They all have to reach the stage of graduation. Children have talent and they get famous for those talents too, but there is something missing in the attitude and the reason is 'quick success'. Everything cannot have a shortcut. I have spoken to the parents of these children to explain to them that winning a show does not mean achieving  everything.”
“My advice to children is ‘Never stop learning’. The mindset that people have about participants disappearing after shows needs to be changed. This will happen if they keep learning,” ended Majumdar.
