While Dhinchak Pooja and Taher Shah will make you want to pull your hair, here's a refreshing voice that will make you thank the Internet.

Ajay Kumar Gautam, who reminds us of Mohammad Rafi, is a labourer by profession from Koirana village situated area on the banks of Ganga River, approximately 45 kilometers from Bhadohi district in Uttar Pradesh. Believe it or not, a video of him singing has garnered over 6m million views on YouTube. Yes.

The viral video shows Gautam singing while at a construction site was recorded by one of his friends who later uploaded it on YouTube.

Gautam's singing knows no bounds whether he is at work or home. Son of an ice-cream seller and a second-year graduate student, Gautam works hard to support his family.

Speaking to ETV Network18, he said, “I always had a liking for singing but I never even thought of that my singing will be liked on YouTube so much. I am really happy that millions of people will listen to my singing and like it. Apart from singing I am also serious about my studies, and I am pursuing my BA second year right now. I manage my fees and other expenses by working as a labour.”

To confirm that it was, in fact, Gautam who sang the song, ETV reporter requested him to sing a song, he was quick to take over the cue and started singing for ETV.

Like any other youngster, Gautam wants to make his own identity in the world of music, but the poor economic condition of the family and the lack of confidence are proving to be a hindrance in his progress. But the appreciation he is getting from the people on the Internet is certainly a booster for him.
