On the occasion of her 93rd birthday of Lata Mangeshkar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared that a chowk in Ayodhya will be named singer, who passed away earlier this year at the age of 92. He said that Goddess Saraswati’s veena, which has been installed in Ayodhya, will serve as a symbol of her musical meditation. The 92 marble lotuses, he continued, were part of the building and represented Lata Ji’s life. Let us tell you that from now on this intersection will be known as Singer. Many celebrities including Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, and Union Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy were present on the occasion.
He stated, “I have a lot of memories with Lata didi, many emotional memories. Whenever we would talk, her sweet voice would mesmerize me. She called me in happiness when Bhoomi Poojan of Ayodhya’s Ram temple got completed”
Earlier, Modi Ji tweeted, “Remembering Lata Didi on her birth anniversary. There is so much that I recall…the innumerable interactions in which she would shower so much affection. I am glad that today, a Chowk in Ayodhya will be named after her. It is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest Indian icons.”
Talking about the chowk named after Lata, Modi said, “The chowk named after Lata didi will act as an inspiration for those who are associated with the arts in our country. This will remind us that being connected to the roots, and going towards an advanced future, it is our duty to spread the message of Indian culture and arts all over the world.”
On February 6, Lata Mangeshkar passed away in Mumbai. She was given the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1989 and the Bharat Ratna in 2001.
