Noted Music Director Vijay Patil of music director duo “Raam Laxman” (Ram Kadam/Vijay Patil) has been selected for the “Gansamradni Lata Mangeshkar award” given by the Maharashtra Government, on her birthday every year.

The award includes Rs 5 lakh, a scroll of honour and a trophy. The announcement of the award was made by Cultural Affairs Minister Vinod Tawde on the 90th birthday of legendary songstress in Mumbai. The award will be given  at a later date.

The musical duo began their career in the seventies. Initially after conducting an orchestra “Amar Vijay’,  the break came, when Dada Kondke gave them a chance to score music for his film “ Pandu Havaldar” (1974), that went on to become a raging hit, and their alliance with Kondke did not break until the latter's death.

Ram Kadam passed away in 1976, after signing the Hindi film “Agent Vinod”. Vijay Patil (Laxman) continued to retain Raam's name in Marathi as well as Hindi films. Later, he did films with many producers. In 1981, he collaborated with Ravindra Rawal for movie “Hum Se Badhkar Kaun”. Song "Deva O Deva Ganpati Deva" from the film continues to be famous even today.

“Raamlaxman” scored music for Rajshri Productions’s many hit films including “Maine Pyar Kiya” (1989), “Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994) and “Hum Saath Saath Hain (1999). “ Raamlaxman” has scored music for nearly 75 films in Hindi, Marathi and Bhojpuri.

On Latadidi’s birth, Mangeshkar siblings showered praises on her for bringing them up with love and affection, after untimely death of their father Pt Dinanath.  Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, who was the special guest at a function organized to release the  book titled “Mothi Tichi Savli” (her big shadow), written by youngest sister Meena Mangeshkar, Mahajan said that if she was to miss this function, it would have been most unfortunate.

 ,thing. Shiv Shahir Babasaheb Purandare expressed a desire to attend Lata’s 100 th birth anniversary function.

Meena Mangeshkar said that the idea to name the book as “Mothi Tichi Savli” came to her mind from the song “Lahan Majhi Bahuli, MothiTichi Sawli” sung by her.

The publisher Appa Parchure, Pravin Joshi, Avinash Prabhawalkar (Hridayesh Arts) and Pandit Shankar Abhyankar participated in the function.
