Last year, the “cutest version” of AR Rahman’s iconic song ‘Maa Tujhe Salaam’ was sung by a four-year-old girl from Mizoram. Since Esther Hnamte’s rendered version of the mesmerising song was posted on YouTube, the internet users flooded praises for the little girl who is a preschooler from Mizoram’s Lunglei district. From hitting “perfect” high notes to not missing a single word in the entire song, the netizens were astounded by how just how “amazing” Hnamte’s voice is. Many have shared the song across social media platforms and even tagged AR Rahman in several posts.
