Female voices such as Lata Mangeshkar, Shreya Ghoshal and Sunidhi Chauhan are such beautiful voices. But after that such voices started come in -- females singing in a ma'e's voice and males singing in a fema'e's voice. No head or tail of a song -- that is the trut"," Daler told IANS.

The participants are a thousand times better than them. Music is good now. The new generation is very"good," he said.
