Remembering a maestro

Melody queen Lata Mangeshkar remembers being treated like a daughter by late singing legend Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, who used to call her Bharat Ratna after she won the countrys’ highest civilian honour in 2001.

“After I got the award he never called me Lata. He addressed me as Bharat Ratna. When I’d visit, he would announce my arrival with Aa Bharat Ratna aale. Prepare something good for her to eat,” the singer said.

Joshi, who passed away on Monday, was awarded the Bharat Ratna in 2008.
