If you listen properly you will find the difference !! Actully Ashaji was copying Geeta Dutt.. If you will listen earlier song of Aashaji you will come to know this.. Geeta Dutt is original... By the way every singer has tried to copy legends earlier to them as Kishor da / Mukesh /Rafi had tried to copy the Great KLSehgal.. nowadays our new plaback singers copying Kishore or Rafi except Udit Narayan & Suresh wadkar they are orginal !!

Though both have their own style ,thats Asha, honestly unassuming and refreshingly different. Its the same refreshing difference that people noticed was back in 1957 when Asha sang for C. Ramachandras Benny Goodman inspired, jazz style tunes in films like Mr. John and Aasha.
Ina mina dika became the leitmotif of a generation, that was looking to move ahead and live life to the full. It catapulted Asha to stardom and came to symbolize the youth.

Ashaji recorded a lot but Gita Dutta could not due to her short span of life. Duttaji was much more melodious than that Ashaji. No doubt, Ashaji is great. But the sweet voice which we, the general listeners get from Gitaji, not get to same extent from Ashaji. Some Pop types of songs played by Ashaji in many languages. But Geetaji was always restricted herself from singing such songs.
