Wishing Lata Mangeshkar a very happy Birthday

History has it that Mahatma Gandhi was called 'Father of the Nation',
Sardar Patel was called as the 'Iron Man of India'. No prizes for guessing as to why is today's birthday girl Lata Mangeshkar called the 'Nightingale of India'! Having started her glorious career in 1942, Latadi has spanned over six & a half decades.

She has recorded songs for multitudes of Bollywood movies & has sung songs in over thirty-six regional Indian languages & foreign languages, though primarily in Hindi. She is the second vocalist to have ever been awarded the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour. In 1974, The Guinness Book of Records listed Lata Mangeshkar as the most recorded artist in the history, stating that she had reportedly recorded "not less than 25,000 solo, duet & chorus backed songs in 20 Indian languages" between 1948 & 1974.
