(Part 8) Lata with Forgotten / Lesser Known Composers

Welcome to the eighth part of the series. When I started the series, I wasn't at all prepared for such a long series. I was expecting it as a five part series at the most. But as the parts got published, the comments by the readers encouraged me to search further, also some of the …

(Part 7) Lata with Forgotten / Lesser Known Composers

Last December, when I started collecting names of composers for the sixth part of the series, I had only five names on the list. But slowly I gathered more names and published the post last month. Though I did not mention it as a last part of the series In my mind it was. Last …

Those who are following the series must have noticed the change in the title of the post. I've updated the titles of the older posts as well. The second part of the series had some of the stalwarts from the 40s and some readers didn't agree with my decision of including those names on the …

(Part 2) Lata with Forgotten / Lesser Known Composers

I started the series, on Lata Mangeshkar's 90th birthday last month. The list of composers became very long and I couldn't come up with the second part last week.
