Yet another guest on the sets of India's Got Talent and it's none other than India's heartthrob Yuvraj Singh. While he has shown India his talent on the cricket field with his bat, he was rather astounded to see IGT's contestant Nitesh Bharti's talent. A sand artist; Nitesh started drawing lord Ganesha by using particular alphabets or numbers, naming this art form 'Akshar Ganesh'. Due to bad financial conditions in the family, he started working as a helper in coaching classes but the love of art drew him back and he decided to then build himself as an artist, with the support of his mom.
Time is like a handful of sand - the tighter you grasp it, the faster it runs through your fingers and this is an emotion that both Yuvraj and Nitesh are known to have experienced. Yuvraj's fight against cancer is a battle that pan India is proud to have witnessed, giving many the will to continue their fight for life as well. Nitesh Bharti touched the heartstrings of one and all by depicting Yuvraj's journey for survival through his sand paintings. What made the occasion even more special was the fact that Colors got Yuvi's mother to be present on the sets too, which was a surprise for Yuvraj. Looking at his cancer pictures brought back painful memories for Yuvraj, who walked away in tears and came back to say "Sorry yaar, I got emotional after seeing the pictures. It's difficult for a cancer patient to watch these images and there were times I didn't like seeing myself in the mirror in those days. God himself couldn't be there so in that hard time, she was with me" and gave her a tight hug.
Nitesh's act left the jury with damp eyes and to quote Farah, "Iss manch par tissue box hona mandatory hai," she said while also adding, "Yuvi u looked handsome even then."
Yuvraj said, "I have never seen such talent.. You made me cry.. All I can say is that you are gifted.. You showed us my entire life in a few minutes and all I can say is thank you." Karan, who was rather emotional because his father too suffered cancer said, "While there is no species stronger than women, you Yuvraj are an inspiration to millions in the world." For Nitesh, he added, "Aapke talent mein special baat hai.. Your hunar, your ability is that you manage to engage the audience.. Your energy and passion leaves me astounded.. You made every emotion come alive." Well, we guess what they say is true, while God can't be omnipresent, he has made mother. Kudos to these two men and the women who have stood behind them.
