Lata Mangeshkar’s career spanned nearly eight decades, and she performed over 25,000 songs in 36 languages. Lata Mangeshkar’s melodious songs include Aisa des hai mera, humko humise chura lo, yeh galiyan yeh chaubara, didi tera devar deewana, dil to pagal hai, tere liye, zindagi pyar ka geet hai, and many more.
However, few people are aware that the legendary singer never listened to her own songs. Yes, you read that correctly. Lata revealed in 2020 that if she listens to her own songs, she will find flaws in them. “Never! I never listen to my own music. If I did, I’d discover a hundred flaws in my singing. “I used to be done with a song once I finished recording it,” she told Bollywood Hungama. The meaning is simple: each of Lata’s songs had to be better than the one before it. “If I listen to them at all, I feel I could have done so much better, applied my creative mind, and given it a higher rendition,” Lata later said.
Meanwhile, Dr. Pratit Samdani, who was treating her at Mumbai’s Breach Candy Hospital, has released a statement revealing that the singer died as a result of multiple organ failure. “It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely death of #LataMangeshkar at 8:12 a.m.” “She died as a result of multi-organ failure after more than 28 days in the hospital following COVID19,” he said.
The nation is already mourning the death of Lata Mangeshkar on social media. Lata Mangeshkar’s death has left everyone in India in mourning, from Prime Minister Narendra Modi to politicians from all parties and Bollywood celebrities.
