An emotional Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar expressed his profound sense of loss for his sister, Lata Didi, during the launch of 'ShivCharitra - Ek Soneri Paan' as part of the 350th Coronation Celebration of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. "When a deer sees her fawn being taken away by a tiger, her heart goes through immense pain. Today, on this stage, I feel the same pain as I miss Lata Didi," he shared.

The event was graced by several notable personalities, including Usha Mangeshkar, Roopkumar Rathod, Kaushiki Chakraborty, Suresh Wadkar, Padma Wadkar, Nitin Mukesh, Adinath Mangeshkar, IRB Director Deepali Mhaiskar, Dr. Deepak Vaze, Dr. Gauri Vaze, Dr. Pratap Pansare, Dr. Esha Pansare, Kshitij Date, Sunali Rathod, Nisarg Patil, Mayuresh Pai, Pushkar Shrotri, the CID team, Ansha Syed, Narendra Gupta, Bhavdeep Jaipurwale, reality show doyens like Mukesh Parmar, Musicologist Shashi Vyas, Mrs & Dr Arvind Patil among others.

Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar, and Ashish Shelar jointly inaugurated and released the song, while Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar recounted cherished memories of Lata Didi, such as their visit to the Taj Mahal. He recalled how Lata Didi was awestruck by the monument. "That day, both the Taj and Didi were in awe of each other. Both were legends in their own right," he said. He also narrated an incident where Lata Didi's voice resonated through the night at the Taj Mahal, compelling a Maulvi who initially came to reprimand her to instead request a rendition of "Kahin Deep Jaale Kahin Dil," recognizing her voice as divine.

Adinath Mangeshkar spoke of his admiration for Dr. Deepak Vaze's poetry, recalling how he loved it when Vaze recited it to him. " It has immense potential, and I felt it needed to be made into a song. Vazeji recited it to Baba, and he loved it. The same with Usha Tai. Roopji didn't take a minute to say yes, and neither did the blessed singer Kaushiki. I am truly happy we could make it happen."

Dr. Deepak Vaze shared his joy, stating, "I feel so elated and blessed that the poem has received its due." Roopkumar Rathod expressed his deep connection to the project, saying, "Maharashtra is my karmabhoomi. I am a son of the soil. I felt so touched, when Adinath wanted me to compose the song 'Shiva Charitra - Ek Soneri Paan' and I immediately said yes. The song turned out to be amazing, and we all loved it!"

Kaushiki Chakraborty expressed her surprise at being chosen to perform a song with Veer Ras. Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar responded by saying that Veer Ras suits women, as they possess true power, and added that all Rasas suited Lata Didi.

Usha Mangeshkar remarked that Kaushiki's powerful rendition would surely have reached Shivaji Maharaj on his 350th coronation celebration.

Hridaynath Mangeshkar announced that he is writing a book titled Shri Sharada Vishwa Mohini Lata Mangeshkar, chronicling his memories of his beloved sister. He also spoke about Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, emphasizing the Maratha ruler's spiritual depth and warrior prowess.

The Shiv Charitra event featured performances, including a song by Kaushiki Chakraborty, and concluded with "Shiva Stuti" by Nisarg Patil. Speeches were delivered by Ushaji Mangeshkar, Adinath Mangeshkar Dr. Deepak Vaze, Kaushiki Chakraborty, Ashish Shelar, and Roopkumar Rathod, with Kshitij Date serving as the master of ceremonies.

Shiv Charitra is available for viewing and listening on the LM Music channel on YouTube.
