As expected, Zoramchhani is the “Youth Icon”. First runner-up is Lalhmingsanga and 3rd being Esther Lalchhanchhuahi. Zomuanpuii of Sihphir was announced “Most promising artist”. Out of 892 talented contestants from all corners of the state, 1991 born North Vanlaiphai girl Zoramchhani more often callled “RC” according to her autobiography gets the top spot. Three cheers to the winning girl and where’s your treat to 3x?
20,000 in cash, Samsung 21 inch TV, Sony DVD Player are some of the prizes the Icon gets.
Get on to her website zoramchhani.com, a gift from Mizosoft Solutions. The guest book is already flooded by fans and well-wishers, most of them from Aizawl, one being Artist Tlangrokhuma. That kind of tells us how many people gets online from Aizawl.

I just googled for “Zoramchhani” and the first link I get is the Icon’s very own mp3 link of “Ka lo haw” uploaded by Zotalk people some two days ago or earlier. So this North Vanlaiphai girl is also on Google index , hitting the first link with her name as search query. [Update ]Zorachhani.com has at this time got over 5000 hits. It was some 2000 while compiling this last night. Comments still pouring into the guest book every couple of minutes. Most of them , from Aizawl.
After boxer Jenny, Zoramchhani is likely to be the talk of the town. My bro is impressed with the judges for being so fair. “Coming from a poor family , she couldn’t pronounce the word filmstar properly, but her talent is amazing”, he said. It was her aunt who brought her to Aizawl. Poorly dressed she had to make ti to the show alone for two nights. A man in the neighborhood precisely “Kawmchhak Pa” was touched who offered her a taxi ride there after. As the show took off, gifts started pouring in, even in the form of cash which she sent to her parents who in turn paid labour to work on their jhum and came to Aizawl to witness their daughter in action at the competition. All these, my brother told me.

3x, time to throw a party on her behalf and where the hell are you, crying in happy tears
Pu Lalnunkunga aka Makunga, Principal of Mount Carmel School has offered her free education up to 10th standard inclusive of free hostel accommodation.
Expecting to hear more from our very own J who said she left to watch the show live on the big screens put up at Zarkawt and Chandmari. Also from father_sphinx, who has just come online.
I had planned to watch the show live at Zarkawt but by 8, we heard the crowd there was already way too huge and unruly, and the screen just too small to watch anything from a distance so we went to Chandmari where a big screen had been put up on the Glenary’s balcony by the VCP who’s a huge fan of Zoramchhani. In fact he even extended to her honorary citizenship of Chanmari :D….Cmari veng khua leh tui nihna an hlan zan anih chu!! Chuan a vawt bawk sia, inah kan haw leh a TVah kan en ta daih. Zarkawt crowd ho kha an bawn hmel khop mai. A tir atang khan Mali’n a vau deuh reng a, “Zanin a man in nih chuan Christmas hma in in chhuak toh lo ang” tih vel in! A changin projector an hliah thul, an banner ken lian leh sang lutuk in a hliah thul, sound switch an lo nawk off thul…..an haappy ve tawk a ni e!

Sad but true. That’s the end of Youth Icon 2006. With this massive success of the show’s virgin debut, I guess there’s more to come in the future.
Made this report in a mad rush. Feel free to pitch in for any correction required.
So what’s next?
