The Sepoy, Prashant Tamang is the new singing sensation, he has been tagged as the 'Uncut Diamond' by Alisha Chinoi, the judge of Indian Idol. Though he has no formal training in music, he has always maintained that professional touch in his songs and is now into the Top 4 of Indian Idol. Being associated with Kolkata police since 2002, he sings in the police orchestra and has grooved many to perform to his tunes. He has a big fan base following and the girls love this Sepoy.

You have never been in bottom 3, so do you think you have the highest chances of winning this contest?

Prashant: No, it’s not that; we cannot say anything. All are good and the competition is tough now. Anyone can go out.

Do you want to go back and join the police profession or you want to stay back here and be a singer?

Prashant: As of now, I am focusing on my singing. I just hope that things fall in place; I am not thinking about future as of now.

Did you ever think you will come this far in Indian Idol?

Prashant: Of course not! I never thought I will get selected for the Galas, this is definitely a Dream come true.

Who has been your inspiration to pursue music and singing?

Prashant: Inspiration to do well in singing has come from friends, parents and my orchestra troupe..

Who is the best judge according to you?

Prashant: It definitely has to be Annuji. He is frank, man main jo hai woh bol dete hai.. Annnuji..

If you were to bring back one eliminated contestant, who would that be?

Prashant: Abhishek!

How was it to sing before Sonu Nigam?

Prashant: It was very nice, was a dream come true.. I was very excited to sing before him, but I felt sad that I could not impress him that much.

If you had to choose your Indian Idol today, who would it be?

Prashant: It has to be Amit!

And now one song you want to dedicate to all your fans and well wishers out there….

Prashant: Yaar Ko Maine Sone Na Diya.

The judges have named him as the 'Dark Horse' of Indian Idol. Prashant is the only contestant who has still not made it to the Danger Zone even once, in the Gala Round. If this statistics remains intact for few more weeks, then Prashant Tamang will surely be the 'Bharat Ki Shaan.'
