    S. Janaki - Nation-wide Recognition???

    Get well soon Smt. Janaki!

    The so-called National Media has NEVER acknowledged the nightingales Janaki and Susheela and probably never will! There's hardly any awareness of their greatness beyond the 4 southern states, although their achievements are on par with the famous Mangeshkar sisters.

    With so much influence of Tamil and Telugu film personalities, journalists and other influential South Indians up North, why is that no one cares to get the due recognition for their contribution to Indian cinema? Alka Yagnik's dental appointments and Aditya Narayan's loss of his pet dog get more footage on the media! This is a real shame.
