Showroom in Lataji’s house
Now the appearance of this house of Lataji has changed. The Mehta family has opened a clothing showroom on the exterior of the house. Nitin Mehta, the owner of the house, tells that he has got Lataji’s mural made in one part of the shop to keep the memory of Lata ji alive. He takes Lataji’s blessings every day with the opening of the shop and only songs sung by him are played in the showroom. Although Lata ji is no longer in this world, but the stories of her simplicity are very famous. Her two braids and white sari were the highlight of her personality. People see her in the form of Saraswati, she really had the same brightness in her thoughts like her clothes.
The first cry was heard in this house
Lataji’s first kilkari was echoed in Indore and she had also learned the style of singing from Indore itself. That is why the people of the city want a Sangeet Academy or a museum dedicated to Lata ji in the form of a grand memorial at her birthplace.
Such was Lataji’s childhood
Local people tell that Lataji used to live with her father Dinanath Mangeshkar in Indore. Father was a theater artist and singer. Because of this, there was a musical atmosphere in the family from the very beginning. This was the reason that Lata started acting as a theater artist with her father from the age of five. He had mastered singing at a very young age with his voice and his melody. Later he sang songs in more than 30 languages.
Lataji’s Dear Sindh Bakery
Lata also has a special relationship with Indore’s Sindh Bakery. His father Dinanath Mangeshkar used to frequent this bakery. Bakery owner Harish Lakhwani says that Lata’s father used to wear kurta pajama and lived in a very simple style. He loved the taste of bakery. Lata ji also sometimes used to come with him to the bakery. This is the reason that even today we worship her like a goddess. After waking up in the morning, put incense sticks on his photo. We are celebrating Lata ji’s birthday for almost 40 years.
Statue of the Queen Empress and Ceremony
The Municipal Corporation is getting Lata Mangeshkar’s statue installed in the Gandhi Hall premises in order to make the memories of the vocal material that has been the pride of Indore everlasting.
