“यूसुफ़ भाई पिछले कई सालों से बिमार थे, किसीको पहचान नहीं पाते थे ऐसे वक़्त सायरा भाभीने सब छोड़कर उनकी दिन रात सेवा की है उनके लिए दूसरा कुछ जीवन नहीं था. ऐसी औरत को मैं प्रणाम करती हूँ और यूसुफ़ भाई कीं आत्मा को शान्ति मिले ये दुआ करती हूँ. (He was sick since a long time. He wasn’t able to recognise anyone. In such a time, his wife Saira Banu was always with him, served him every day and night. She did not have a life beyond him. I really want to pay my respect and tribute to her. I hope and wish my brother Yusuf’s soul rests in peace),” Lata Mangeshkar concluded.
