Rickshaw men excel in 'Pop Idol'



By Mark Dummett
BBC News, Dhaka



My life has now changed thanks to the will of God


Omar Ali

Omar Ali is Bangladesh's unlikely new music star - he's a white-bearded rickshaw puller from an impoverished village a day's drive from the capital, Dhaka.
But his voice is golden and millions of viewers voted for him to win a television "Pop Idol"-style talent show, which has just reached its climax.
Magic Tin Chakar Taroka, or Three Wheel Star, was only open to the riders and drivers of Bangladesh's one million-plus three-wheelers - its cycle- and auto-rickshaws.
Their work is badly-paid and back-breaking and they seldom have anything to cheer about.
But Omar Ali's final performance of the Bengali folk song Lovers Never Drown was so powerful it had the audience, which included many of Bangladesh's leading pop stars who have backed the show and coached the rickshaw-men, dancing in their seats.
With the release of a CD and DVD - and prize winnings of nearly $2,000 - the wiry Mr Ali can now afford to abandon his rickshaw cart, with which he used to transport goods to market.

It's great to see some innovative shows hitting our TVs. Hopefully ATN will make this an annual program.
