Governor Rajendra Vishwanath Arlekar has expressed deep sorrow on the demise of legendary playback singer Lata Mangeshkar.
In his condolence message, the Governor said that this loss to the music world by her death could never be fulfilled. He added that her whole life went into the practice of music. He said that she was related to Goa as her father Shri Dinanath Mangeshkar belonged to Goa. He said that the contribution made by Lata Mangeshkar, whom everyone used to call Lata didi, in the field of music was incomparable, which could never be forgotten. Lata didi sang many songs in different languages but in her singing, musical practice and austerity were exposed.
He said that it seems that the music star has broken with the passing of Lata didi. She was a melodious singer and soft spoken, which was difficult to compensate for.
The Governor prayed to the Almighty to give peace to the departed soul.
