S D Burman's Love and Hate for Lata

Lataji and Burman Da have done some splendid works and have created marvelous songs.Despite their brief tiff, that had stirred up a huge controversy at the time, both legends got back to working together again after 5 years from 1958 to 1962.These five years SD Burman was none the worse as he continued to give some of the greatest music of his career, now with Geeta Dutt and Asha Bhosle, but he realized he had something beyond, where only Lata Mangeshkar could reach. She also felt that there was something unique in Dada’s music, without which she would remain incomplete. 

Lata Mangeshkar was his ultimate choice. He often said, “Give me a harmonium, give me Lata and I will make music”.
 Lata’s first song for S D Burman was probably in Mashal (1950)

Aankhon se door door hain par dil ke paas jo 

Song from Mashaal 1950

 .The very next year came Naujawan starring Nalini Jaywant and Premnath,the song Thandi hawayein lahraa ke aayein became Super Hit,it remains one of the Lata's immortal song.Same year came Sazaa starring Dev Anand Nimmi and the song "Tum Na Jaane Kis Jahan Mei Kho Gaye" became immortal.
Song from Naujawan 1951

Tum na jane kis jahan me kho gaye..
Song from Sazaa 1951

In 1952 released Dev Anand's Jaal .The music of this film became very popular,Lata's Chandni Raten, Chori Chori Meri Gali Aana Hai Bura and Duet with Hemant Kumar"Yeh Raat Yeh Chandni Phir Kahan" are immortal songs.

 Their second innings led to another set of great melodies in Bandini, Guide, Tere Mere Sapne, Prem Pujari, Talash, Anurag, Abhiman etc which continued till the very end of his career.
It is said that S D Burman called Lata on phone and requested her to sing a song for his son's first film Chhote Nawab in 1961 which she agreed,later R D Burman mediated between both and removed the misunderstanding between them then S D Burman gave her a song in Dr Vidya  1962,their first song after patch up was ‘Pawan diwani’
