In a career spanning almost eight decades, Lata Mangeshkar lent her voice to thousands of songs in 36 languages. The government of India bestowed her with the country’s highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna.
As a mark of respect, a two-day national mourning has been announced. The National Flag will fly at half-mast for two days and there will be no official entertainment.
Veteran singer Asha Bhosle penned an emotional post following elder sister Lata Mangeshkar’s demise. “Bachpan ke din bhi kya din the. Didi and I (What amazing days they were during our childhood),” Bhosle wrote in the caption of the childhood photo of herself sitting on a table and Lata standing beside her.
