Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007 contestant Poonam Yadav has an adopted daughter, aged six. Twenty six-year-old Poonam is a single mother…Thanks to Sushmita Sen and her daughter Renee, single motherhood is catching on. Poonam Yadav is no style diva but an ordinary girl from Lucknow who has taken the step of adopting a girl.
A source from the production house reveals that Poonam is only 26 years and belongs to a lower middle-class family. “As she is a contestant on the show, the channel wanted her mother to be present too. When they talked to Poonam Yadav with daughter Simran her mother in Lucknow over the phone to invite her, she asked if she could bring Poonam’s adopted daughter, Simran, as well. Needless to say, the channel was stunned with the revelation.”
Poonam’s father died before she was born. Her mother worked as a housemaid and also sold roasted corn on the streets of Lucknow. To make ends meet, Poonam managed to pass standard 12 and also worked in a PCO for Rs. 600 a month.
Her daughter Simran was just two when her biological mother abandoned her, four years ago. Poonam lived in the same neighbourhood and needless to say could not tolerate the apathy towards the girl child and took her home. Her mother was obviously stunned, but Poonam stood by her decision. Gradually, her mother also supported her cause and the little girl became a part of their family.
When contacted, Poonam said, “I adopted her because I didn’t want her to undergo the same difficulties as me. I still had shelter, she was abandoned. I feel that if every family adopts an orphan, no child will be without shelter. With my kind of income, if I can gather the courage to take this initiative, I think anyone can do it. We just need the determination to do it.”
Payaol Patel, the creative head of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa confirmed the news. She said, “We were actually stunned when we heard about Poonam. When our team went to her house in Lucknow, they found that she lived in a very small house and she belongs to a lower middle-class family. Hats off to her, she has the guts to adopt a daughter. More so because she belongs to a poor family and being a single mother in a state like Lucknow is a laudable feat.”
