Yesterday i was surfing internet and came across this video of SUMANJI....it was made on the occassion of her recieving LATA MANGESHKAR AWARD...(Jan. 2010).. she looked so gracefull with her changed hair to greyish.....she sang couple of lines of her three ,four hindi songs and of course my fav MARATHI SONG...JITHE SAGRA DHARNI MILTE...Folks, believe it or not, her voice is not changed...it is as sweet and romantic as it was when she stopped singing commercially...Naturally from deep down from my HEART...Sumanji..LOVE YA very much...and GOD BLESS YOU....Only the reason i can understand of her leaving music worls at such an early time is...Indian music was taking a wrong EXIT
