Sorry but I don't agree that she shouldn't have been selected. Why not? Why differentiate? If the girl gets national recognition on the basis of her talent, why discourage her? How disheartened would she have felt if the judges didn't allow her to go and instead gave her money? Why should there be an amount for her talent? Why shouldn't she earn the respect and money for her education and better life instead of it being given to her as alms?
Sure her family's financial condition is not great but why should her father have to compromise his self respect and take money for nothing? It's obvious that they've come because he wants Reshma to be popular and he wants everyone to see her talent, doesn't matter under what circumstances she's had to learn it but truth is, it is an exceptional talent and it shouldn't have a price on it.
I am glad the judges picked her and if luck continues she will go far..
