“She
(Lata
Mangeshkar)
was
not
my
sister,
but
mother.
All
the
rituals
have
been
performed
on
an
auspicious
Muhurat,”
Usha
Mangeshkar
later
told
the
gathered
reporters.
Nashik
Purohit
Sangh
president
Satish
Shukla
conducted
the
rituals.
Nashik
civic
commissioner
Kailas
Jadhav
and
some
local
politicians
were
also
present
on
the
occasion.
The
city
administration
had
made
all
the
necessary
arrangements
for
the
rituals.

A
small
platform
and
a
pandal
were
erected
at
the
site.
Elaborate
police
security
was
deployed
and
vehicular
traffic
was
prohibited
in
the
area
for
some
time.
Lata
Mangeshkar
(92)
died
in
a
Mumbai
hospital
on
Sunday
morning
after
a
multi-organ
failure.
She
was
cremated
at
the
Shivaji
Park
in
Mumbai
the
same
evening
with
full
state
honours.
Prime
Minister
Narendra
Modi,
Shah
Rukh
Khan,
Aamir
Khan,
Ranbir
Kapoor
was
among
those
who
paid
their
last
respects
to
the
music
icon
at
the
Shivaji
Park.
On
Monday,
three
urns
containing
Lata
Mangeshkar’s
ashes
were
handed
over
to
Adinath
who
is
the
son
of
her
brother
and
music
composer
Hridaynath
Mangeshkar.

According
to
a
news
report
in
the
Hindustan
Times,
Lata
Mangeshkar’s
doctor
Pratit
Samdani
had
revealed
to
a
publication
stating,
“Whenever
Lata
Ji’s
health
deteriorated,
I
would
have
treated
her,
but
this
time
her
condition
was
deteriorating
day
by
day.
Though
we
continued
our
efforts
but
eventually
we
could
not
save
her.”

Dr
Samdani
had
further
added,
“I
will
remember
her
smile
for
the
rest
of
my
life.
Even
in
her
final
moments,
she
had
a
smile
on
her
face.
For
the
past
few
years,
her
health
was
not
good
and
hence
she
was
not
able
to
meet
anyone
much.
Ever
since
I
have
been
treating
her,
Lata
Didi
used
to
talk
very
little
and
didn’t
speak
much.
However,
God
had
different
plans
for
her
and
she
left
all
of
us
forever.”
