Lata Mangeshkar (Sur Kokila)

A living legend, the melody queen of India Lata ji's songs have captured the hearts and imaginations of millions of her admirers around the world. I do not have words to express the depth and scope of Lata Mangeshkar's genius. Blessed with a mellifluous voice, she is the most well known Indian vocalist. She is also known as "The Nightingale of Bollwood". She is recipient of many awards and honors both within the country and abroad, "Bharat Ratna" India's highest civilian honor is the one among them. I would like to share my experience while sketching her. All the time i was feeling that i am skecthing the Goddess of music. It would not be a wonder to call her as reincarnation of "Maa Saraswati" and people say also "ye to sakshat maa saraswati hein, inke kunth mein to Veena Vadini Maa Saraswati ka vaas hai".

Your comments are most welcome on her sketch!

Kishore Kumar (The Legend)

This blog especially for Kishore Da's fans. He is not alive but he still lives in his music and in our hearts. He was eccentric, very human, romantic, a versatile singer and a man of different moods! His "Golden Voice" gave us so many songs that are beyond par excellence. The incomparable Kishore kumar was born on Aug 4, 1929 and passing away on Oct 13, 1987 left a void that could never be filled. Here I would like to share my experience while sketching him- I never felt I am sketching a personality who is not at all among us. We really miss you "Kishore Da".

Your comments are most welcome on his sketch!
