Meri Aawaaz Hi Pehchan Hai…
Continuing with our special series on legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar’s 84th Birthday, we bring you yet another fascinating fact from her life!
On 16th December 1941, at the age of 13, Lata marked her first performance on AIR. Her father heard the broadcast in Pune and tears rolled down his cheeks as he commented with containment, ”Now I can die a peaceful death. Hridaya (as he lovingly called Lata) has made it big. She shall take the Mangeshkar family’s name to great heights!”
