16th March 2016
Proudly says ‘imd1’ for
Music - Singer
When you posses an inborn talent, there is no force that can stop you. Dhritishman Chakraborty, a cute little 3 yr old hailing from Assam has a huge fanbase at this early age. He first grasped the lyrics of a song while he was 11 months old when a child cannot even murmur properly. Being supported by the strongest pillars of his life i.e his parents, he believes to achieve his dream of becoming a Rock Singer. We know a child is the luckiest when he finds a Guru in his mother and yes Dhritishman has inherited the Musical genes from his mother who is a singer as well.
imd1 really appreciates his parents for encouraging the talent and taking enormous efforts to make him a great singer. We wish you luck for a successful journey ahead!
We are really keen to know how did your journey begin? What was that moment when you discovered that you want to become a Singer?
Dhritishman’s Parent: Dhritishman since childhood has a good sense of Musical notes imbibed from me (Dhritishman’s Mother). I am a singer and teach students music lessons at home. Once when I was teaching “Tera mujhse hai pehle ka nata koi” song, he was just 11 months old. He heard and started to murmur that song in fine tunes and nodes. We were all surprised at that moment. That day he heard the same song on loop for next 20 times. He easily grasped the lyrics. His father got amazed seeing his 11 months old son singing so well. Post that, he grew up listening and singing various songs. In my classes, just like me he instructs my students to sing the correct nodes, not to miss the beat, sing loudly and properly. At the tender age of 3 yrs, he could understand very well the way in which a song must be sung. He had recently heard the song “Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani” from the Movie Student of the Year 2, which he grasped and learned within a day. We are thankful to Almighty for blessing us with this little talented kid.

What were the hardships/hurdles you’ve encountered and how did you overcome them in your journey?
Dhritishman: My parents don’t let me feel anything like hurdle.
Dhritishman’s Parent: The major hardship is about being in a remote area with very limited resources. Extracurricular activities have less exposure in the place we belong to. I remember, once we decided to shoot and record Dhritishman’s song in a studio and the studio owner refused saying he is still a child and let him first learn properly. We had no other option as there was only one studio where we reside. His refusal also demotivated Dhritishman. Then we decided to arrange the recording setup at home and learned the audio and video editing softwares. Now we both (parents) manage the complete recording on our own for his passion of singing.
Who has been your influencer in this journey & how?
Dhritishman: My parents as they are working really hard and keep motivating me.
Tell us something about your Guru?
Dhritishman: My mother as she herself is a Singer and corrects me whenever I don’t sing well. I am blessed with a true Guru.
Success is incomplete without its share of setbacks. What advice would you give to others about handling them?
Dhritishman: Just keep moving, everything that happens, happens for good.
Dhritishman’s Parent: Every journey has its own share of failures. Just love your passion, love what you do and one day you will surely achieve success.
Do you think Singing and its learnings can be helpful in life even if one does not want to consider it as a career?
Dhritishman: Yes, it makes everyone happy.
Dhritishman’s Parent: Singing gives you mental satisfaction, stability, and enhances your concentration. Music tends to be your best friend. It remains with you in each phase of life, even if you don’t want to make it a profession.
What are the pre-coaching essentials e.g. Right age, mindset or any other?
Dhritishman’s Parent: There is no right age or mindset. It’s just if you have talent you can start pursuing it anytime. Just love your passion. Belonging to Music background we could recognize our child’s talent at an early age.
How has technology transformed the world of Music?
Dhritishman’s Parent: Due to technology artists are now able to showcase their talent and reach to a huge audience. In our case, belonging to a remote area, uploading a video on Youtube has given an unexpected exposure to Dhritishman. His video on Social Media has got him blessings and appreciation from various parts of country. Also, due to online auditions it’s been easy to participate in competitions or shows. Everything is easily possible through various gadgets and platforms.
What according to you is scope of Singers in India?
Dhritishman’s Parent: Music is a very appreciated art form. People appreciate and love Music. Everyone hears to music and looks for new singers with raw voices. Hence, singers have a bright future. We personally feel if one starts with classical music than any form of Music can be adapted and learned. Also, your scope increases with the various genres that you learn.
If you were to bring one big change in the way people get trained in Singing, what would that be?
Dhritishman’s Parent: As I mentioned, one should begin learning music with Classical music. In this form you learn the depth of notes and tunes which makes your basics clear. Riyaaz is very important, which nurtures your singing and helps you to easily perform any other music form. Begin with Classical and you can be a pro in any other form as well.
What do you suggest for better accessibility of Music training in remote parts of India?
Dhritishman’s Parent: There is a huge scope for Music in India. Kids these days grasp music and lyrics very effortlessly. In the remote parts, like ours, there are very talented kids in the field of MADS but they don’t get the optimum resources to showcase. Although technology has played a vital role in providing exposure. But I feel in such parts of country various stage shows, competitions should be conducted as it gives them the confidence to face the audience and perform. Then online auditions should be encouraged more as not everyone can travel to cities and give auditions.
Your piece of advice to parents who are skeptical about their children taking up a career in any co-curricular activities?
Dhritishman’s Parent: Education is important but extra-curricular is equally important. Children should be given freedom to choose their profession. We can guide them wherever required but pressurizing them affects their mental ability. Education is must, but these days choosing co-curricular activity as a career option is seem to be equivalent to a corporate job.
Your piece of advice to the youth of our country?
Dhritishman’s Parent: Enjoy life, you live it once.
What is your success mantra?
Dhritishman: Just have faith in God, He is always there to support you.
What was your thought behind encouraging your kid to take up Singing as a professional career?
Dhritishman’s Parent: Singing is what he loves to do. We only guide him to listen to the song properly, later on he himself grasps it and sings it so well. So even if he takes up Music as his career we will be more than happy. Choosing his profession will be his decision, we are always there to guide, motivate and support him.
Which was “that” moment when you considered yourself as “I Am The 1”?
Dhritishman’s Parents: We uploaded his first video and received lot of blessings and appreciation from people all over India and even out of India. That was a very proud moment. Also, recently Dhritishman’s one of the Assamese song went viral and many news channel (News Live, NEWS 18 North-East) came to cover him. But, the most important achievement is when his video was shared by legends such as Shaan, Shantanu Moitra, Swanand Kirkire, Sandhya Mridul and many more. These were the moments when we strongly believed that yes our Dhritishman is the one
Any other thoughts you want to share?
Dhritishman’s Parent: If you have the talent then it has to come infront of people, only you require is a correct platform for the exposure. Just feel blessed with every one's blessings across the world. Also we are thankful to imd1 as this is his and ours first interview and we are very excited for it.
