The sad passing away of Kumari Lata Mangeshkar has left all Indians across the world including the Indian Diaspora and those who loved music, anguished beyond words. She has left a void that cannot be filled. She was very kind, caring and was one of the most accomplished and humble Indians. Her popularity spanned across generations. The coming generations will remember her as a stalwart of Indian culture, whose melodious voice had an unparalleled ability to mesmerise people. Her songs brought out a variety of emotions for over 7 decades during which she was a witness to the transitions of the Indian film world. Beyond films, she was always passionate about India and it’s progress.
We pray for her soul to attain Sadgati and strength to her family and millions of fans and followers to bear the loss. Om Shanti.
