Singer Lata Mangeshkar, one of the most respected playback singers in the industry, has given us some of the most memorable songs from 1940s to 2007. Today the Lukka Chuppi singer wrote an emotional note remembering her mother, Shevanti Mangeshkar who she lovingly addresses as ‘mai’. Today is the death anniversary of her mother and so she shared a beautiful picture, and wrote, “Aaj meri pujya mata ji jihne sab Mai kehete the unki punyatithi hai (Today is the death anniversary of my respected mother).”

After Lata’s father passed away, it was her mother who took care of the family and stayed with them through the thick and thin for almost 53 years. Remembering this, the singer wrote, “Mere pitaji ke swargwas ke baad lagbhag 53 saal Mai humari maa aur baba dono ban gayi. Mai se humne swabhiman se jeena sikha (After my father passed away, for almost 53 years, my mother also played the role of my father. We learnt to live with self-respect from our mother).” She also spoke about how even today she has stuck to the teachings of her mother and follows in the footsteps that her mother has advised her on.
