I don't know much about the history of Leela, but am familiar with her
songs. She sang many beautiful songs, for example, the song `EmitO i maaya..
challani rAja vennela rAja' from `Missamma'. I feel, what we call
`Teneloluku Gaanam'. It will be great to know about Leela-Ghantasala 
combination.                                   Sahithi
