Happy Birthday Janaki Amma

Sunday, April 23, 2017 • Tamil Comments

Today is the birthday of S.Janaki, who is one of the most respected senior play back singers of the country.

Janaki started her singing career in 1957. She has worked with the legendary music directors of all Indian film industries. She has recorded over 48,000 songs in 17 Indian languages including the four South Indian languages. She has crooned the songs composed by Tamil music legends M.S.Viswanathan, Ilaiyaraja and A.R.Rahman. Ilaiyaraja made her sing the most number of songs in Tamil.

She has won four National awards and a lot of state awards. She was also received the prestigious Kalaimamani title given by the Tamil Nadu State Government in 1986. The Indian Government announced the Padma Bhushan Award for her in 2013 but she refused to accept the award rightly stating that the recognition was too late and little.

Janaki is indeed one of the precious gems in the history of Indian cinema and film music industry. We hope the Government's confer her the right recognition she deserves at least in the coming years and do a favor to her fans and the entire nation.

IndiaGlitz takes pride in wishing a Happy Birthday and many more years of good health and happiness for Janaki Amma.
