Lata Mangeshkar

lataLata Mangeshkar turns 80 on Monday, September 28.

I’ll be listening to Lata Hits, and there are so so many, during my travel during Dussehra festivals.

What’s your favourite song of hers? Think hard.


  1. My response to this question will not include any of her so-called hits. Since my hobby is to collect songs from flop movies, here are two of my hot favorites by Lata: (1) Hume Tumse Mohabbat Hai Hamara Intehaan Le Lo (Film: Bad Aur Badnaam) (2) Saajna, Main Sadaa Tere Sang Hoon Yeh Jahaan Ho Yaa Woh Jahaan (I think this is from Dilip Kumar- Saira Banu starrer “Duniya”). Search in Youtube.


  2. A record number of friends SMSed / called to say this song from movie ‘Dil Apna Preet Parai’ (1960), is their favourite.

    They also wished Lata Happy Birthday, in advance.

    I am thankful to Sharmila Tagore for correcting me and telling me that Lata Mangeshkar will turn 80 and not 50 (as I had wrongly written earlier, I am really so sorry for that).

    Brother Rajshekhar Vyas put his preferences for ‘Rasik Balma’, ‘Mohe Bhul Gaye Sanwaria’ & ‘Aaye Mere Watan Ke Logon’.

    Thanks everyone, everybody. And happy birthday Lataji.

    Here’s the most favoured song by Lata Mangeshkar from ‘Dil Apna Preet Parai’. [Directed by Kishore Sahu; Produced by S. A. Bagar. Starring Raaj Kumar, Meena Kumari, Nadira, Sammi Aunty. Music by Shankar Jaikishan].
