India’s Nightingale, Lata Mangeshkar, has left for her heavenly abode. The end of a musical era came this morning after the legendary singer and Bharat Ratna succumbed to multi-organ failure and chest congestion.
She was admitted to Mumbai’s Breach Candy hospital for a COVID-19 infection followed by pneumonia. Lata had recorded songs in over thirty-six Indian languages and few foreign languages, though primarily in Hindi and Marathi.
She received several accolades and honors throughout her career. In 1987 The Dadasaheb Phalke Award was bestowed on her by the Government of India. In 2001, in recognition of her contributions to the nation, she was awarded the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour and is only the second female singer, after M. S. Subbulakshmi, to receive this honour.
France conferred on her its highest civilian award, the Officer of the Legion of Honour, in 2007.Initially, Lata is said to have imitated the acclaimed singer Noor Jehan, but she later developed her own style of singing. She brought a new signature style of singing to Indian film music, moving away from mehfil-style performances to suit both ‘modern’ and ‘traditional’ female protagonists.
