India split into India and Pakistan and forced people to opt for one or the other. It affected all sectors including the film industry. Singer-actress Noorjehan represented the generation that suffered the most. After becoming immensely popular across the country in the 1930s and 1940s, she opted for Pakistan after the Partition.But physical location of artists has often failed to divide them or their fan following. This was very true of Noorjehan. The magical quality of her voice continued to wield a charm on both the countries. Fans treated her as a common treasure and a symbol of shared tradition and values. She was the most sensational singer-star of the Indian film industry of her time and was often called Mallika-e-Tarannum (the queen of melody). Even Lata Mangeshkar, referred to as the nightingale because of her melodious voice, was inspired by her. She was born in Qasoor (Punjab) of undivided India in 1926. She perfected her classical singing under Ustad Ghulam Mohammad Khan and enthralled audience with her personality which was a rare blend of beauty, voice, acting and success. She passed away in Pakistan in 2000. Her first visit to India after Partition was in 1982, when she was welcomed with open arms by one and all including the then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi. She was also received by Dilip Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. The audience had got one more opportunity to hear her sing live Awaz De Kahan Haiâ ¦ Her voice had not lost the magic touch.
