Work was undoubtedly worship for legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar. She began her career in 1942 at the age of 13 and gave over seven decades to the music world. Although India's nightingale is no more with us, her huge body of work will be remembered forever.

On Sunday, the first Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar Award ceremony took place in Mumbai, wherein Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and family members of Lata Mangeshkar including sister Asha Bhosle paid heartfelt tributes to the Queen of Melody, who breathed her last on February 6 following multiple organ failure.

In her emotional speech, Asha Bhosle recalled her fond memories associated with Lata Mangeshkar. She also appreciated Lata Mangeshkar's immense love for her work, revealing how she had once worked despite suffering from a 104-degree fever.

"She started working very young. I remember once she had a 104 fever, maa (mother) told her to don't go for shooting as her health is not okay, but didi (sister) refused and went for the shoot. How much trouble one has to do as an artist and she did that," Asha Bhosle shared.

While talking about her sister, Asha Bhosle also hummed to the tunes of Lata Mangeshkar's evergreen song 'Aayega Aanewala'.

The Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar Award was instituted in the memory and honor of Lata Mangeshkar. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi received the first Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar Award for his selfless service to the nation.
