You are right sir. both the sisters lata ji and asha ji had monopolised the industry for a long time. if i remember correctly this nexus was broken by anuradha podwal with help of gulshan kumar of T series

Yes she was.Two sisters monopolised by sheer luck with one singer actress migrating to Pakistan(Noorjehan) and another deciding only to sing in her husband's productions(Geeta Dutt).Singers like Suman Hemadi(Kalyanpur) were victimised....whether anybody likes this statement or not,it is a fact.

She was less fortunate, despite her many immortalised 7 unparalleled songs otherwise her name would have been attached for giving awards to other great singers. It is really an irony till end of her career to receive such award attached to her competitor's name.

You are very correct Subhash Bhai in your contention.But Lata Mangeshkar has been accepted as a legend all over the world and the award constituted in her name is a rare and valueable honour for any singer.Let us not go into the past politics here and see Lata Mangeshkar's past and the Lata Mangeshkar Award as two seperate issues.If I ma not wrong some other legendry singers like Pandit Bhimsen Joshi have also been honoured with Lata Mangeshkar award and to the music lovers it sometimes seems rather a mockery of a person of the stature of Pandit Bhimsen Joshi.But an honour is an award and a recognition and when in the name of a great worldwide renowned artiste it should be taken in the right spirit only.
Though this is my personal view and may not necessarily be 100% correct.
