Observing the special day and sharing his heartfelt tribute, he said that Lataji was melodious and kind soul, often referred to as Maa Saraswati, who stumped the world with a divine voice. She did Sadhana and we all got the boon. He also underlined the Veena that was unveiled in Ayodhya, at the Chowk, and said that this would become the symbol of musical practise.
