Vajpayee's poem sung by Lata Mangeshkar

As India bid farewell to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, his ‘sister’ Lata Mangeshkar dedicated an unreleased poem to her ‘brother’.

The poem titled ‘Than Gayi, Maut se than gay’ which was written by Vajpayee, has been sung by Mangeshkar. The music has been given by Mayuresh Pai.

The Bharat Ratna awardee singer took to Twitter to inform the same and tweeted:

My brother was a saint. He was as magnificent as the Himalayas and as pure as the Ganga River. When I recorded some of his poems, this one poem was not in the album. I offer that poem today to his memory.”

The iconic playback singer said in a statement:  “In understanding the lives of great men, I found that their victory was over themselves. The one person who reflected this was Atalji.”

Fondly calling the former PM ‘dadda’, she added, “He evolved and spiritual appreciation of the two most profound realities of life and death put him at peace with himself. He very gracefully embraced the harsh realities and rose above them. An unparalleled leader but to me, he will always be my ‘Dadda’ In his memory, I humbly bow down.”

Shortly after Vajpayee’s death, she had expressed condolences on Twitter.
