The Nightingale Who Soothes Our Souls Turns 82!
the Nightingale of India, who has been soothing our souls for all these years.
May she do so in the years to come.
As long as music will exist, her voice shall enthrall us.
Vadhdivasachya Hardik Subhechcha!!!
Happy Birthday, Lata-ji,
we pray for your good health.
Lata-ji is young-at-heart even having turned 82!
Her mellifluous singing charms us through ages.
The legendary singer has sung in more than a thousand films,
and has sung in more than thirty-six languages!
She has about 30,000 songs to her credit,
having started her singing career way back in 1942.
These days, she rarely gives public performances, but her grand appearance in Kolkata, the city of joy, last month at a programme entitled Tagore Forever was really special. She was present along with the illustrious Mangeshkar clan, that included the likes of Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Meena Khadikar (her sisters), Hridaynath Mangeshkar (her brother, an eminent composer).
