Lata Mangeshkar has us charmed with her spectacular voice. A voice that was once rejected for being too soft and nasal compared to the hard vocals that were preferred during those times, today has become a vital asset to the industry. She is the greatest playback singer in the Indian cinematic world. A voice that might have never been to school but has been presented with numerous degrees and doctorates.
Lata Mangeshkar has charmed the whole of India with her voice. She is not just the Daughter of India but also the Nightingale of India. After the death of her father, as she was the eldest in the family, she had to work for supporting her family. She was a very kind and generous woman. From Madhubala to Dimple Kapadia as well as Preity Zinta had been voiced by Lata Mangeshkar.
The patriotic song she sung for those brave Indian martyrs, with her voice overflowing with emotions got Jawaharlal Nehru to break down. The song Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon moved many heartening people into tears and still has a similar goosebump giving hold!
Lata Mangeshkar worked with many legend composers like Madan Mohan, Sajjad Hussain, S. D. Burman, Laxmikant-Pyarelal and R. D. Burman. Some precious feathers in her crown are her awards like Padma Bhushan, Padma Vibushan and Dadasaheb Phalke award. Not just these but she also has been awarded the highest civilian award by the Government of India, Bharat Ratna.
All these achievements and you still ask what is so special about Lata Mangeshkar? She is the undisputed queen of the Bollywood music industry.
