PM Modi On Lata Mangeshkar’s Birth Anniversary: ‘A Chowk In Ayodhya Will Be Named After Her’

New Delhi [India]: Late legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar would have celebrated her 93rd birthday on September 28. Marking the unique event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid a touching tribute to her.

In a tweet, the Prime Minister expressed happiness as a chowk in Ayodhya could be named after Lata Mangeshkar on Wednesday.

“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,” PM Modi wrote on the microblogging website.

UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took a decision to name the chowk in Ayodhya after the Bharat Ratna honoree. Days after Lata Mangeshkar surpassed away on February 6 due to more than one organ failure, Yogi Adityanath made a declaration about naming the chowk after Lata Mangeshkar.

A 40-feet-long and 12-meter-excessive veena sculpture weighing 14 tonnes has been set up on the intersection in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.

Padma Shri awardee Ram Sutar has made the giant sculpture.

Born on September 28, 1929, Lata Mangeshkar commenced her career in 1942 at the age of 13. The melody queen recorded songs for over a thousand Hindi movies in a profession spanning seven a long time. She recorded her songs in over 36 nearby Indian and foreign languages. She is called the ‘Queen of Melody’ and ‘India’s Nightingale’.
