A woman from Ranaghat station in West Bengal who made her living singing for daily commuters became an online sensation earlier this month after a video of her singing the song “Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma Hai” from the 1972 Bollywood film Shor, originally sung by Lata Mangeshkar and composed by veteran music composer duo Laxmikant Pyarelal, left listeners mesmerized.

That Ranu Mondal became viral on the internet as an account of this came as a breath of fresh air in her life. A makeover from a parlour has managed to change her life and looks, and she seems to have gained a new life.
