Memorable Swarnalatha

It was quite a shock when I heard last month about the demise of Swarnalatha who will always be remembered for her incredible sweet voice. It is still fresh in my memory about her interview during Chinna Thambi release where she demonstrated the change in bhavam for the songs "Poovoma Oorvolam" and "Nee Yenge Naan Inge" that were set in same tune though. Unlike S.Janaki who used to have an effortless style of singing, I remember Swarnalatha's renditions with a stiff posture and high concentration.

I don't know, if anyone can bring back the magic of "Ennulle Ennulle", "Maalayil Yaaro Manathodu", "Kuyil Paattu", "Hai Rama Yeh Kya Huva" and many more... She excelled in all genres of songs and some of my favorites include "Aattama Therottama" from Captain Prabhakaran and "Maaya Machindra". Her voice dynamics is simply superb.

Though Swarnalatha is not among us in physical form, truly, her incredible sweet voice and creations will be around us for ever.
