This year’s recipients of the prestigious award include 3 of my favorites – Pranab Mukherjee, Ratan Tata, and Asha Bhonsle. All of them are luminaries in their respective fields, and have left deep impressions in my mind.
Asha is a performing artist, a singer equal to none. For her to constantly remain under public scrutiny yet deliver quality songs year after year speaks volumes about her caliber.
This post is a tribute to her ageless acceptability and immense popularity across seven shores. Here are 2 video clips from 2 films separated by more than a quarter century.
The first features Sushmita Sen in Filhaal, and the second shows Helen in Caravan for the evergreen outstanding song, Piya Tu..
