Lata Mangeshkar is perhaps one of the greatest singers in India. The legendary singer took to her social media account on Sunday to share a heartfelt post for her late brother in law R.D Burman. Rahul Dev Burman or R.D Burman would have turned 81 on Sunday. R.D Burman was married to Lata Mangeshkar's sister Asha Bhosle.
In her Facebook post Lata Mangeshkar wrote, "Namaskar. Apne pyare sangeet se aur acche swabhaav se sab ka dil jitnewale RD Burman, yaane Pancham, ki aaj jayanti hai. Pancham apne pitaji se bahut pyar karta tha. Pancham ka aur mera rishta bahut anokha tha, woh jab bhi khush hota ya dukhi hota, toh apni mann ki baatein mujhe bataaya karta tha. Pancham ki yaad mujhe hamesha aati hai. Pancham aur uska sangeet hamesha sunnewalon ke dilon par raaj karta rahega aisa mera vishwas hai (Today is the birth anniversary of RD Burman, aka Pancham, who won everyone's hearts with his lovely music and good behaviour. Pancham used to love his father a lot. Pancham and I shared a unique bond, whenever he was happy or upset, he would open up to me. I think of him always. I believe, Pancham and his music will continue to rule the hearts of music enthusiasts forever)."
In another tweet, Lata Mangeshkar wrote, "27th June is Panchams(Shri Rahul Dev Burman) 81st Birth Anniversary and in his memory and as a tribute to his musical genius, I shall speak about one of his most iconic songs that has made him eternal."
The legendary playback singer also shared the link to a song composed by R.D Burman called 'Tujhse Naraz Nahi Zindagi.'
