Veteran singer Asha Bhosle wishes her legendary sister Lata Mangeshkar on her birthday, talking of the hardships Lata went through to look after the family

Singing legend Lata Mangeshkar celebrates her 83rd birthday today and her younger sister, singer Asha Bhosle paid rich tributes to her in Shiv Sena party mouthpiece Saamna. “A singer that can equal Lata didi has not been born yet. She is only one such piece created by god. There will never be someone like her ever – has not been in the past, will never be in the future,” Asha said in her tribute that appeared in Saamna on Friday. She said she is indeed privileged to have been born as Lata’s sister.

“What good wishes do I give her on her birthday? I will only say that she is Goddess Saraswati herself. I will touch my head to her feet and bow down to her, seek her blessings and will pray for her long life,” said Asha.

Lata being four years elder to Asha, she said that her elder sister always took care of her after their father passed away. “She managed the home and took care of us despite several problems. It was very difficult for her. She then started as a playback singer for Bollywood films. And, honestly, god gave her the place she deserved – right on top.”

Asha said that Lata’s songs still create an atmosphere of romance whenever one hears them. “This divine voice was bestowed to my sister. There is no luck bigger than being born in the Mangeshkar family and as a sister to her. Didi is my mother. I bow down to her once again and wish her a long life,” Asha said.

On the other hand, Lata said she has no plans to retire and will continue to sing the way she has been singing all these years. “As of now, retirement is out of question,” she said.
