Veteran Bengali and Odia singer Nirmala Mishra passed away at her own residence in Chetla, Kolkata, at the age of 81 on Sunday, 31st July. According to the senior doctors, the deceased singer suffered from a massive heart attack.
Mishra, a recipient of the Balakrushna Das Award, was born in 1983 and made major contributions to the Bengali and Odia music industry. Unfortunately, she had been suffering from age-related ailments for a few years. As a result, according to reports, Mishra was bedridden for several months.
According to what the doctors have told PTI, the legendary singer “suffered a massive heart attack around 12.05 am and was taken to the nearest nursing home, where the singer was declared dead.”
Grieving the death of the artist, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Bannerjee posted on her social media page:
“The void left in the musical sky by this falling star is irreparable. May her departed soul rest in peace. Deepest condolences to her family and well-wishers. Our hearts will forever be filled with her songs.”
Some of her famous songs include Eamon Ekta Jhinuk, Ei Banglar Mati Te, Amar E Bedan Majhe Tumi, Bolo Toh Aarshi, and many more.
Among her Odia songs, mention must be made of Nida Bhara Raati Madhu Jhara Janha, Jaa Jaarey Bhashi Jaa, and more.
