Mumbai: On the 93rd birth anniversary of the late Lata Mangeshkar, prime minister Narendra Modi shared his interactions and affections with the legendary singer. "Remembering Lata Didi on her birth anniversary. There is so much that I recall... the innumerable interactions in which she would shower so much affection."

To honour the contribution of Lata Didi to the Indian music industry and her efforts as a Bharat Ratna Awardee to bring laurels to the nation, Modi stated, "I am glad that today a chowk in Ayodhya will be named after her. It is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest Indian icons."



Lata Mangeshkar, who was born in 1929, is well-known for her incredible voice, which has infused charm into hundreds of songs and continues to be a favourite of many people today. Starting her career at the early age of 13, she dominated playback singing for many years. The most talented singer in the Indian cinema industry, also referred to as the "Nightingale of India," was born in Indore on 28 September 1929 to classical musician Pandit Deenanath Mangeshkar and Shevanti.

Lata Didi's siblings, Meena Khadikar, Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, and Hridaynath Mangeshkar, are also well-known figures in the Indian music and film industries.

5,000+ songs by Lata Didi have been featured in more than 1,000 Hindi and 36 foreign films. The famous song, "Meri Awaaz hi Phechaan Hai," sums up her career that lasted more than 80 years as India's most well-known and renowned vocalist in a very beautiful way. Other masterpieces of melody that Lata Didi created and will live on forever include: "Lag Jaa Gale," "Tere Bina Zidagi," "Ae Mere Watan Ke Logon," "Aap Ki Nazron Ne Samjha," "Pyaar Hua Ikrar Hua," "Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai," and others.

On the occasion of her birth anniversary, a number of other distinguished individuals have paid tribute to the master singer. Many artists created tribute artworks for her.
