One of the most popular shows on Mahuaa TV is “Sur-Sangram”. It had created history in its first run and now the second season too has reached the final stage.

But this time it is not going to happen again. Only one of these two, Mamta or Raghubir, is going to be the winner and the decision is in your hands.

Bhojpurias are very egoistic and everyone thinks he is beyond criticism. At the same time the same person enjoys crticising others. Recently in the popular Bhojpuri reality show Sur-Sangram shown over Mahuaa TV channel had an exchange between two stalwarts of Bhojpuri Music. This lead to a chain of events ultimately casting a dark shadow on the channel and the society as well.

Bharat Sharma, a popular Bhojpuri singer of yore, was called as a special judge on the sets of Sur-Sangram, and was sitting between two permanent judges of the show – Malini Awasthi and Kalpana. Eight fresh contestants were introduced in that episode to challange the finalists, one each from U.P. and Bihar. To be honest, this was an immoral act on the part of the channel to take benefit of the increasing popularity of the show by extending the number of episodes. ANd ,naturally the permanent judges wanted to know from the contestants what special they have to challange the finalists. There was nothing wrong in it but Bharat Sharma opposed them and interrupted Kalpana not to do so. In reply Kalpana asked back, Is the contestant your relative? Every was stunned by her frank and fearless reply not falling in undue awe of a senior like Bharat Sharma, who is called Bhojpuri Samrat by his fans.

Matter should have been dropped by both the parties as the show ended but no. One of the party got so humiliated that his cronies took matter in their hands and started criticisng Kalpana branding her as a small time singer who does not know Bhojpuri culture and does not honour Bhojpuria stalwarts. Many things are being said against her. Many organisation are taking the benefit of this incident to come in the news. Even the parties involved seem to enjoy the cacophony saying it just a show business and any news is good news as long as it keeps them in the news. Bharat Sharma should haveebehaved like a senior but no, he appears in no mood to forgive Kalpana for her temerity to speak against him.

In the mean time another sequence was underway. The show was initailly planned for 35 episodes and so were the judges, the anchor, and the sponsor were contracted. Kalpana had other pre-arranged engagements, so she declined to extend her contract. So did the sponsor who refused to dole out more money and claimed to be the sponsor till final contest of the Sur-Sangram without paying any extra money as the serial has been extended without reason. The channel got another sponsor and wanted to run the show as usual. Manoj Tiwari was against it so he too declined to anchor the show. After a marathon meeting he was made to accept his new role as a judge in the show in place of Kalpana and now Ravi Kishan will anchor the show in place of Manoj Tiwari. Kalpana' no show in extended episodes is now cited by the cronies of Bharat Sharma as their win as they were demanding ousting of Kalpana.

This whole episode reconfirms that Bhojpurias dont take criticism in good spirit. A new group of Bhojpuri extremists is trying to take over the Bhojpuri as their person feedom and wants to silence every other voice which dares to oppose them. This new trend has to be nipped in the bud for the betterment of Bhojpuri culture and language otherwise these fundamentalists will take over and that will cause doom of everything related with Bhojpuri.

Bhojpuria ego seems to have rubbed into the non-Bhojpuria judges of Sur Sangram, a reality show shown on the first Bhojpuri TV Channel Mahuaa.

Contestants from UP and Bihar are showing their singing talent in this reality show. Malini Awasthi and Kalpana are the two judges who judge the contestants in every episode. But the two judges have no harmony amongst themselves. Malini Awasthi is said to be peeved due to the popularity of Kalpana amongst Bhojpuri population. Many of the contestants sing the popular songs of Kalpana or Manoj Tiwari in the serial and Malini seems to dislike it.

In the coming episode, due to be shown this week on Friday and Saturday on Mahuaa TV Channel, the two judges have an ugle spat between themselves. When Vijayeta Goswami, a contestant from Gorakhpur sang a popular song, Jeeja Ke Chhotka Bhai Ha, originally sung by Kalpana Malini said that the perfomance was worst and so she was lost somewhere in her thought. This was enough provocation for Kalpana who burst out saying was it the performance or the fact that it was her song? Malini replied that you have small mentality. Kalpana shot back saying yes, you sing for the upper class so you have a big mentality , I sing for the masses and so have a small mentality.

Kalpana is so angry with this incident that she is telling that it was a mistake for choosing no-Bhojpuria judges for a Bhojpuri reality show. It would have been proper had Bharat Sharma and Sharda Sinha were made the judges.

Malini says that it does not matter who sung the song originally. She was more concerned with the performance of the contestants and even if the contestant had sung a song originally sung by her and the performance was poor, she would have said so.

Fortunately the incident was managed skillfully by Manoj Tiwari, anchor of the show.
