Having covered solo songs of significant ‘other’ female singers, like Suraiya, Geeta Roy, Shamshad Begum, Raajkumari, Asha Bhosle and Surinder Kaur, we will now take up songs of ‘other female singers’ among the other than Lata Mangeshkar female solo songs.

It is no secret that I had not heard of these songs before. So I have chosen to take up those songs that I would now like to listen again as well, if brought on the same page.

Others of other have several more players who not only were big names of the Vintage Era that is coming to the close, but also have songs that stand on their right in 1949 as well. So we will need more post …. before we sum up……..


In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging! One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems. So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation. At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships. I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator. And yet, The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
