In the next couple of episodes, we ill take up micro-view of solo songs of those female singers who have got one, or at best two, films in in 1946. Even from these very limited number of songs, the actual number of songs that we would get to listen to has further reduced, because the digital versions of these songs do not seem to be available on net.
