Lata Mangeshkar, a legendary Indian vocalist, died on Sunday at the age of 92 after post-Covid complications.
According to reports in Indian media, the 'Nightingale of India' died of multi-organ failure after a month in the hospital.
In the first week of January, the old singer was hospitalised to a private hospital's intensive care unit. She was also diagnosed with pneumonia and remained in severe condition during her stay in the hospital. Lata was put back on a ventilator after her health deteriorated, according to the Indian physician who has been caring for her.
The Indian government has proclaimed two days of national mourning, with a public broadcaster saying that the country's flag will be flown at half-staff and that a state burial will be held for the singing legend.
The world has mourned Mangeshkar's death, and celebrities, politicians, and social activists have expressed their condolences. Following Lata's death, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and others flocked to social media and sent tweets.
