“Sanjay Mandal and Group” are a bunch of kids and youngsters, making music out of waste and discarded stuff..!! Broken Metal pipes, used mineral water bottles, metal tin cans, water dispensing bottles, chipps can container, metal pencil boxes, soft- drink bottle caps.. Don’t miss out on that conch blow with a piece of pipe!
Listening to their performance, I get transported to my childhood. These were the rhymes that mom often teased me with. She was my perfect sibling- she had often exceeded all sibling rivalry possible (I miss that and her). I had sat watching them on my TV like a fool, remembering my mom and her words. Their music moves me to tears no matter how many times I hear them. While uploading the videos, I have barely been able to stop crying. Each time that young kid spoke to poem, I got goose bumps all over. I had spent searching for their videos for over half hour- not even once I had let their music go off..
Surprising and sadly, they could not make it to the 1st three even.. It seems that since a Minister had graced the show; the particular state got to win. Whatever..!@%^@@$%
All the Best Wishes..
Edit- 1st February, 2011
The comment below by Sanjay Mandal seems to be from none other than the performer himself as captured in the above video. His words are transliterated in Hindi- vernacular. Since I know the language, I have replied in Bangla. For everyone’s benefit and not letting the purpose get defeated of this post and his comment; I translate both the comments in English. Do keep in mind that I may not be able to post the accurate translation; however, have tried my best to post the essence of the words as posted below.
I am Sanjay Mandal. I did not know that so many people love me and that they hold such high opinion about us.
I don’t know much about the internet and that’s what delayed my contacting you; apologies for the same.
And I observed that some people want to meet me, they want to take me in their program. I would also feel good if I could part-take in their program, meet them; but they have a different number listed against my name and I don’t know anything about them. When I called them, they said that if someone asks me, I should say that they happen to be my manager.
That’s precisely why, I Sanjay Mandal, ask for your apology for not having been able to meet you all and Thank you Olivia for honoring me so much.
It felt nice reading your comment here..
I thank you a lot that you made efforts in searching this post and putting across your words here.
Your performance was awe- inspiring; my vocabulary is limited to express my appreciation towards you all. I had my own doubts about that number listed and that’s why I had not included that in my post. Incase you would want to share any of your own numbers, please do send a mail. I will put your contact numbers up in my post- here.
I’ll translate both your and my comments in English so everyone gets to read it.
Sending you loads of love and warm wishes.

Hey olivia,i m highly thankful to u for creating this ‘blog’ which is really a great tribute to unbeliveable n bunch of talent “THE SONJAY MANDAL AND GROUP”.I m using ‘the’ bcoz they really deserve this.i salute their spirit n enthusiasm.alike u my eyes were also wet when i saw them performing the vry 1st time time,it was so….touching and when i heard their story i almost wept.what a curse of fate tha such a diamonds like them had to suffer n struggle so much but finally by the blessings of MAA DURGA n KALI n definatley by their will power n endless talent they showed the world that no matter they were not awarded the winner (credit goes to dirty politics n politicians) but every1 knows that who the real winner is.it is rightly said olivia that the blaze n light of the sun is not hidden by the clouds n this group has proved that.they r the heartthrob of the nation n the whole nation loves n respect them a lot.and now look over the comment of becca,their talent n soul touching performances has crossed the borders.i m really vry vry happy 2 see them rising.
Olivia its a request 2 u tha if u know the name of that child who is the main lead singer(dancer,rapper:-)) then pls let me know,he is vry talented n charming.
Well space provided over here is not sufficient 4me 2 express my love n respect 4 them.wish them all the best,may god give them the zenith of success.

Olivia – although I am definitely at a disadvantage of understanding the verbal language – one cannot mistake the sound of the music, the joy in the eyes of the band, the facial expressions of the judges, and the reaction of the audience. Awesome. Music is a universal language … as are smiles. Thank you!
That’s right Becca! Thank you so much for hearing their music.. the poor guys didn’t win- thanks to the pre- decided judgement. The whole country was furious including me. That’s when I had written this post. My efforts didn’t go waste. The artist himself has commented which has been translated in English for everyone else..
Many thanks n hugs xx

Hey i work for an event management co in Blr, wanted to book Sanjay Mandal & group for an event in Kolkata, i m not able to find the contact number..can some 1 plz help me with this?
Thanks for stopping by. Unfortunately the number listed all over isn’t the one- so claims Sanjay himself! He hasn’t really passed on any number to me! Incase he reads it here- well then, that’s too uncertain!
Not much of a help here!
The number listed above happens to belong to Sanjay Mandal himself; so the commenter claims.
I believe this would be of some help 🙂

YEAH!!!!! IT WAS SHOCKING FOR MEH TOO THAT SANJAY MANDAL GROUP ARE NOT THE WINNER OF IGT-2 , BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONE WHO DESERVE TO BE WINNER… I DON’T WHY PEOPLE NOT VOTED FOR THE SANJAY MANDAL GROUP, BECAUSE THEY’VE TALENT THAT’S FOR SURE…. AND THEIR MUSIC IS JUST EXTRA-ORDINARY CREATED BY WASTES MATERIAL .ACCORDING TO MAH OPINION THE CHAMPOINS ARE SANJAY MANDAL GROUP…. I WISH THIS GROUP ALL THE BEST FOR THEIR FUTURE ..SANJAY MANDAL GROUP YOU ROCKS GUYZZZZ!!!!
I don’t think they were voted out Pradeep. As I already said, maybe, this was to please that particular chief guest; knowing how these things go in our country!!
If only we ever realize how much we are losing out on trying please a bunch of anyways already happy!!
I wish them all the very best in everything that comes up now..
its very heart breaking to see that people of india does not voted enough made them winner(sanjay mandal & group) or they had done by some kind of conspiracy who knows ?? but i really appreciate the work u have done for them to get some thing out of this. surely they deserve more…..
That’s right Abhijeet- they do deserve much more.. I sincerely pray for their recognition and some kind of main stage winning too.. 🙂
I am so touched to see that at least you made an effort to write about this group. It was such an unfair judgment. Can’t believe that people are becoming so callous. The winners of India got talent 2010 was definitely undeserving in comparison to the other talents in the finals. In any case, Sanjay Mandal’s group should have been in the top 3 winners. The result was VERY heart breaking.
Infact, I could not do it in as much detail. I too was shocked to see the judgement. If you see the date of that post, I had posted the videos long before the Finale..
I guess more than unfair judgement, it is about being biased and pre- staged. I really am surprised how could the public not ask for the count of votes and they have sms-ed for them. Not literally but in the form of the result..!!
Thanks Timmy for putting your words here.. 😀
Very talented youngsters! Your mother sounds like a wonderful person. Wishing you a great new week.
Thankyou Dear Friend.. 😀
She was indeed- all I have is memories of her now.. Wishing you too a Great week ahead.. 🙂 xoxox
i want to invite Mr. Sanjay Mandal and his group in our School Program.. how can i contact them??
In this post there should be a number given… check! Thanks for choosing them. They are the best 🙂
