After Abhijit Sawant's success, the Indian Education Society has been making announcements in school every single day asking students to vote for Amey Date, another ex-student, on Indian Idol II
Monday and Tuesday, the principals of the 40 Indian Education Society
(IES) schools in the city make a special announcement over the public
address system: Please ask everyone you know to send an SMS for Amey.
Amey Date is one of the four finalists competing for the title of Indian Idol II on Sony Television. He is also an ex-student of IES' S V Nabar Guruji Vidyalaya at Portuguese Church, Dadar.
The IES is hoping that Amey will repeat the success of the reigning Indian Idol Abhijit Sawant, who was a student of IES' Raja Shivaji Vidyalaya at Hindu Colony, Dadar.
The Indian Idol show is a singing competition where contestants are eliminated on the basis of audience votes.
People can call or SMS to vote for their preferred contestants. With as many as 40 schools in Mumbai campaigning for Amey, he does have a great chance of winning. In addition to the announcements, IES authorities have also put up posters soliciting support for their ex-student.
Indira Rajput, principal, S V Nabar Guruji Vidyalaya, said, "Every Monday and Tuesday, when the Indian Idol show is telecast, we make an announcement asking students to encourage their parents and relatives to vote for Amey. Even when we meet the parents at school gatherings, we make the same request. I believe Amey can create history by being the second IES student to win this contest. Coincidentally, both Abhijit and Amey have names that begin with A. We think that's lucky."
"I knew Amey from his school days. He was a shy boy and we had to push him to participate in competitions, but he always did well in those events. He is a very disciplined boy. And when I went to watch a shoot of Indian Idol, he recognised me and smiled. I am very happy with him. I tell everyone I know to vote for him.
"Like Abhjit Sawant, Amey will also win this competition," said Harishchandra Phadle, Amey's physical training instructor.
