The end of an era in India's rich music history. May the Melody Queen RIP. Not many might know that Canadian legend Anne Murray requested Lata Mangeshkar to sing her song "You Needed Me" at the United Way of Greater Toronto concert way back in 1985! Here she is taking that eternal superhit and making it all her own. So surreal and so beautiful hearing her sing in English
Maa Saraswati in her human avatar had left us to her celestial abode and that too on the day of vishwarjan (immersion of idols) of Maa Saraswati. We have observed Saraswati Puja just yesterday and today is the Vishwarjan. May her soul attain serenity in the other world.
Bohut Door Mujhe Chale Jaana Hai
Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai...
Playback singers are the closest to immortals - like SP Balasubramaniam sang in one of his songs "i shall remain in the space through my music forever" - Lata ji will be there among us forever through her songs. Rip.
