The history of Hindi film music would be incomplete without her contribution; none before or after her has been able to match the texture and modulation of her voice. Legendary music director O.P. Nayyar once described her voice as a “natural miracle”. She gave unforgettable hits like Tadbeer se bigadi hui taqdeer bana le (Baazi ), Babuji dheere chalna (Aar Paar ), Thandi hawaa kaali ghata (Mr. & Mrs. 55), Ae dil hai mushkil jeena yahan (C.I.D.), Hum aapki aankhon mein (Pyaasa ) and Waqt ne kiya kya haseen sitam (Kaagaz Ke Phool ).
Geeta’s Dutt’s untimely death was a great loss to the music world.
