  • Description
    Since 1949, when Lata Mangeshkar was first noticed for her extraordinary singing talent in the Mahal song "Aayega aanewala", her magical voice has taken a firm hold of the Indian imagination. The tuneful purity and timeless quality of her voice have had a profound impact. For over six decades, as the much loved singer, she has reigned supreme in Indian film music and has been conferred in 2001, the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour. Lata Mangeshkar has recorded more songs than anyone else in the world and yet, despite her extraordinary fame, she is a deeply private person who has mostly shied away from glitz and glamour. "Lata Mangeshkar - in Her Own Voice", a series of fascinating conversations between Lata Mangeshkar and Nasreen Munni Kabir, takes us into the world of India's most gifted singer and reveals the person behind the voice that has provided the soundtrack for the lives of billions.

    A MUST FOR LATA MANGESHKAR FANS....

    Its a beautiful book on Lata mangeshkar.. conversations between Lata and the author and few other interviews with the family members of Lata...

Also, what wud better than the words of her own (i mean Lata herself answering the questions about her life, work and related people to her professional and personal life)... Moreover, almost every page contains pictures (including from the c...

    GOOD COMPILATION

    Worth buying. Rare Photos. Good page layout. Give deep insight on the life of the Nightingale of India, the sweetest voice in the film music world. A small information / facts on Lata's rendering of film songs in other Indian languages (apart from Hindi) was required.

    Well-compiled, good collection of rare photographs.

    This book is an excellent gift for all Lata Mangeshkar lovers.
    I gifted it to my dad, and he loved it.

    The stories and other titbits are a treat to read!

    Had to return the first order as the binding was not stable enough. The second book was fine though.
    Overall: 5 for the book!
    2 for Flipkart's service.
