The third part of the solo songs of Geeta Roy for 1948 follows the same pattern as the one observed in earlier part  and , i.e. I do not have any song that I recollect ever having heard earlier. The songs in this part certainly bear the trade mark Geeta Roy singing. I am so happy that I did get to listen to these songs.

Most of us would be in the same boat – not having heard these songs earlier. That is not such a surprise, but the main issue is whether these songs linger in our memory and whether these give a feeling of making a great discovery. That is where Lata Mangeshkar scores over others. There are dozens of her absolute gems I have discovered in recent years.
In my view, the lingering of Lata songs into our mind can be attributed to her overwhelming presence over the whole of the golden era. That made her songs of these initial players getting more space as the then equally popular songs of the other female singers.
More you remain in contact with someone more intimate you are likely to be as compared to someone equally known but in lesser degree of the contact.
I do not intend to take way any merit of Lata’s songs, but trying to explore some rational basis of understanding our behavior process as compared to some one who was always brought up on the vintage era singers.
