Lata Mangeshkar, the Nightingale

TWO SONGS PER MEMBER
PLEASE POST WITH AN INTRODUCTION ONLY.

La...ta Mangeshkar. Two simple words perhaps. But words that embody a voice that has stirred millions of Indian hearts for over half a century. A voice that brings a thousand emotions singing forth. A voice that drove a former prime minister to tears. A voice called Lata Mangeshkar.

Despite the 398 languages of its people, if India has a common tongue it is undoubtedly that of Lata Mangeshkar's. In her seductive voice the hopes and aspirations, fears and passions, pain and joy of teeming millions have found expression for the last 71 years. And even when we have nothing else left to share, there will always be Lata's soulful rendition of Aye mere watan ke logon to move us to tears.
