The veteran singer cherishes her childhood memories of Gudi Padwa

Gudi Padwa marks the beginning of  New Year for Maharashtrians. Our Marathi folks in B-town celebrate the festival with much enthusiasm. Veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar has special childhood memories of the festival too. “As kids, all of us — Meena, Asha, Hriday and Usha — would wait for the gudi to be decorated. We used to create what is called, ‘shakkar ka haar’ (garland of sugar), which is made of batashas. This garland used to be drape on the Gudi.all of us would fight to make the garland. Later, we used to steal the batashas and eat them,” confessed Lata in an interview to a daily.

But today the 81 year old has a different plan to start a new year on musical note. “This year on Gudi Padwa, I will go to Pune to inaugurate a music school started by Vishwanath Karad. The school is housed in a university. They have a variety of classes for students to choose from — vocal, instrumental etc,” added the 83-year-old singer!

We BollywoodLife wish both Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle a very happy Gudi Padwa, and hope they continue to gives us many more memorable songs in the years to come!
