Oscar-winning ‘Mozart of Madras’ A.R. Rahman wrote just four words in his tribute to Lata Mangeshkar, “Love, respect and prayers”, on Sunday, and posted a picture that said a thousand words — of him sitting at the Nightingale’s feet.
We are saddened by the passing away of legendary singer and ‘Nightingale of India’ #LataMangeshkar. Your melodies will forever remain with music lovers across generations.
Deeply saddened by the demise of Bharat Ratna #LataMangeshkar. An institution in herself, she was conferred Officier de la Legion d’Honneur’ in recognition of her incomparable singing career. Our heartfelt condolences to her loved ones and fans across the world.
“An irreplaceable loss to the nation. An irreplaceable loss to the world of music. Bharat Ratna #LataMangeshkar will live in our hearts forever,” writes T.S. Tirumurti, the ambassador and permanent representative of India in the United Nations.
Om Shanthi. Our respects to the ‘Nightingale of India’.
