Lata Mangeshkar: Nightingale of India honoured with a Doctorate
The legendary Lata Mangeshkar was recently honoured with a Doctorate of Letters from the Goa University. Even at this age, the Nightingale of India has a passion for music hardly seen nowadays.
Speaking about the endless overnight ‘singers’ that have cropped up courtesy reality shows, she says, “There are very few people focusing on their work. They are more bothered about the way they dress. They want to be known by the way they dress.” She added, “The singers who are by products of such shows do not last forever.” Wonder what the TV channels have to say to that.
