Four of the finest

India lost four of its finest and most beautiful citizens last week. Gangubai Hanagal and Damal Krishnaswamy Patammal were doyens of classical music who overcame economic and gender prejudices. Leela Naidu was the ethereal beauty of the Hindi film, Anuradha (1,2) also marked by its outstanding music score composed by Pt.Ravi Shankar. Gayatri Devi was in many ways the last of the Rajputana Royals with lineage, class and mass appeal. Rest in peace.
