But Lata ji had forgotten her name was engraved on the pen. She had no clue that this lyricist's goal was something else. He was trying to demonstrate to Lata that she had fallen in love with him. That's why, when the recording began, he would enter their booth in the middle and insist on singing while drowning them out. Fill these sentences with so much love that it appears as though you are absolutely submitting to your sweetheart. Lata swallowed her rage here as well.

But it was too much that day when these lyricists unexpectedly arrived at Lata's residence. Lata was having fun in the courtyard of her Nana Chowk home with her sisters. She was just giggling and acting like a teenager at the moment. 'If I had been alone, I may have gotten into problems with his appearance, but in the presence of my siblings, I didn't want to hear a thing from that clinging man,' Lata said. I escorted him on the road. I yelled angrily, putting the pallu of my sari around my waist, how dare he enter my house without my permission? 'If I see you here again, I will chop you up and dump you in this gutter,' remember that I am a Maratha, I said
