Jai Bharati Vande Bharati

।। जय भारती, वंदे भारती ।। सर पे हिमालय का छत्र है चरणों में नदियाँ एकत्र है हाथों में वेदों के पत्र हैं ऐऽऽऽ देश नही ऐसा अन्यत्र है।। धुऐं से पावन ये व्योम हैं घर-घर में होता जहाँ होम हैं पुलकित हमारे रोम-रोम हैं आदि-अनादि शब्द ओम है।। जिस भूमि पे जन्म लिया राम नें गीता सुनाई जहाँ श्याम नें पावन बनाया चारों धाम नें स्वर्ग भी लजाये जिसके सामने।।

"Namaskar. Aaj hamare mahaan desh ka 64th Swatantrata Diwas hai; jiski main aap sab ko bahut, bahut badhaai deti hoon. Hamara desh aur samaaj ek bahut hi vikat aur vichitra daur se guzar raha hai; par mujhe asha hai ki janata avashya kuchh karegi aur hamare desh mein ek sundar aur swasth samaaj ka nirmaan hoga; toh, main aapke saath mera ek gaaya hua rashtriya bhavna ka geet share karti hoon, jise Shri Bharat Vyas ne likha hai aur Shri Avinash Vyas ne compose kiya hai. Yeh gaana originally 'Adi Sankaracharya' film ke liye banaya tha, aur mujhe yeh gaana itna pasand aaya ki maine ise baad mein record kiya. Mujhe asha hai ki yeh aapko bhi pasand aayega."

Lata Mangeshkar In Conversation with Manek Premchand 09-24

100 Minutes with Lata Mangeshkar! Done with Manek Premchand of WorldSpace Satellite Radio. 
This interview was done a few years ago just prior to the sudden shut down of WorldSpace Satellite Radio. As such it remained unpublished. We have added the legend's video songs to give this conversation an audio-visual feel.

Album liner notes:

The 103-year-old Royal Albert Hall in London -- Britain's most prestigious auditorium with a seating capacity for 6000 -- witnessed a musical phenomenon unequalled in its hallowed history when the inimitable Lata Mangeshkar made her international "debut" on its august stage with a series of three concerts in the aid of the Nehru Memorial Project in Britain in March 1974.

Seldom, indeed, has the hall been booked for a single recitalist three times in one week. What, however, made the event equally unique was to have the hall packed by an oriental artiste for all three nights -- and something more. For even after the intermission on the final night (March 14), there still were crowds willing to pay double the highest price for admission to the hall!

Inside the hall, Lata, the cynosure of all eyes, received a big ovation as Dilip Kumar -- one of India's top-notch film stars, who was also specially invited by The India League, sponsors of the Memorial Project -- introduced her at every concert as his "little sister" and as "a singer with the voice that defied description and definition".

Tribute after tribute, as also bouquets galore, came to Lata from many eminent personalities of England and India.

Then amid the ideal setting that matched her many-splendoured talent, Lata sang her songs with a seraphic impulse. She could demand and obtain the spontaneous surrender of her 18000and odd listeners -- and sent them home with gladdened hearts and nostalgic memories.

That is at once the singular distinction of the one and only Lata Mangeshkar..."the undisputed melody queen of India"..."the pint-sized bundle of musical genius"... "a singer with a moonlight in her throat"... "a legend in her lifetime"...
