Portrait_Lata Mangeshkar



Lata Mangeshkar, actually she does not require any introduction as she is well known personality in India and Abroad. She has divine voice and is the best known Play Back Singer in Hindi Film Industry from Black & White to Color era. She has spend almost six and a half decades and sang in over a thousand Bollywood movies and has sung songs in over twenty Regional Indian Languages, but primarily in Hindi.

She won several awards and honors, including Padma Bhushan (1969), Padma Vibhushan (1999), Dada Saheb Phalke Award (1989), NTR National Award (1999), Bharat Ratna (2001), three National Film Awards, and 12 Bengal Film Journalists' Association Awards. She has also won four Filmfare Best Female Playback Awards. In 1969, she made the unusual gesture of giving up the Filmfare Best Female Playback Award, in order to promote fresh talent. She was later awarded Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award in 1993. 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 and chorus backed songs in 20 Indian languages" between 1948 and 1974, (30,000 songs between 1948 and 1987, according to the 1987 edition).

Here is my small mark of respect and wishing a Melodious Journey, as always, on her 80th Birthday.

This is an addition to my Editorial Illustration Series.

Mother Teresa_Illustration


Mother Teresa had first been recognized by the Indian government more than a third of a century earlier when she was awarded the Padma Shri in 1962. She continued to receive major Indian rewards in successive decades including, in 1972, the Jawaharlal Nehru Award for International Understanding. She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and, in 1980, India's highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna for her humanitarian work. By the 1970s she was internationally famed as a humanitarian and advocates for the poor and helpless, due in part to a documentary, and book, something Beautiful for God by Malcolm Muggeridge.

Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity continued to expand, and at the time of her death it was operating 610 missions in 123 countries, including hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis, soup kitchens, children's and family counseling programs, orphanages, and schools.
