Was watching a news item about Shakira playing Kaali, where they showcased several of her popular music videos.
Most of the videos had her contorting her body into several complex positions, and I wondered why it was so necessary to dance about so much if you wanted to just sing. OK, I know all about being the complete entertainment package, but my respect for Lata Mangeshkar went up several notches. Here is a highly popular singer who cares only about her singing and nothing else. And what a marvellous job she has done, without making a song and dance about it.
