Lata laments ...

On the eve of her 73rd birthday, erstwhile nightingale of India Lata Mangeshkar expressed her dismay at the state of the nation and of music today in an interview with Subhash K. Jha. When asked about the quality of music these days she says: Is it really music? In my opinion, what's being made these days isn't really music. Actually we don't even have many music directors. Earlier, there were so many distinguished names who thought deeply about their music. They had the time and the inclination. . This from the person who continues to present one hackneyed glass-shattering banshee ballad after another ... And yes, she has something to say about the Truth Hurts affair too, but don't expect an interesting point of view.
