She went to Mumbai with her husband Bablu Mondal in search of living but returned nearly a decade ago to Ranaghat due to depression, according to India Today.

Since then, she has “been living alone in poverty.”

“From my childhood, I had a passion for listening to music and singing along. Although I liked Mohammad Rafi and Mukeshji’s songs, it was Lata Mangeshkar who inspired me a lot. I could relate to her singing and the melody always touched my heart,” Ranu was quoted as saying.

Authorities in Ranaghat are now planning to felicitate her on August 14 as part of the West Bengal government’s Kanyashree Divas celebrations.
