This article is the first in the series of Living Legends of Bollywood. My first article is a tribute to none other than the living legend of the world – Lata Mangeshkar. I call her Living Legend of the world and not just India because she is a gift to humanity. Her voice has mesmerised people all over the world for the last eight decades. I have not been able to find an apt word in the English dictionary that can best describe her voice. She is known by several names – Saraswati, Nightingale, Queen of playback singing and many more. Her unblemished voice gives water to a thirsty soul; the sweetness in her voice awakens the singer in everybody. Listening to her voice can make anybody’s day.
Her voice is nothing short of magic. Her voice is a mix of everything melodious – Nightingale, Mockingbird, Koel, American Robin, She is an inspiration to many. Some say it openly, and some have remained silent. Everybody has tried to imitate her voice at some point in life. This is what I call living life to the fullest. She has dedicated her life to her passion and how.
Today we talk about how to follow your passion, how to make your dream come true. Why can’t the younger generation take inspiration from our living legends? They were full of discipline, commitment, dedication, devotion, and consistency. Nothing could deter them from their path. It is hard to choose one best song by Lata Mangeshkar. Here is a link to one of her songs.
