Lata Mangeshkar’s ashes immersed in Ramkund in Nashik

Lata Mangeshkar, also known as “The Nightingale of India”, passed away a few days ago on February 6, 2022. Her death shocked the whole country, as her contribution to Indian cinema and music is unparalleled. For the past few weeks, the singer had been suffering from COVID-19 and other health issues. A public funeral was held in Mumbai’s Shivaji Park after her death.

Lata Mangeshkar's family visited Nashik on Thursday and laid her ashes to rest at the holy Pavitra Ramkund on the banks of the Godavari River. Ramkund is the place where it is said that Lord Rama used to take his daily bath during his 14-year exile.

The immersion ceremony was attended by Mangeshkar’s nephew, Adinath Mangeshkar, as well as other relatives. A few Hindu priests also performed a short prayer ceremony with the family and a few close friends in attendance.

A large number of Nashik locals also flocked to the area's Goda Ghat to pay their respects to the music queen. “She (Lata) was my mother, not my sister. All of the procedures were carried out on an auspicious muhurat,” Usha Mangeshkar told reporters.

Satish Shukla, president of the Nashik Purohit Sangh, performed the rituals. On the occasion, Nashik civic commissioner Kailas Jadhav and a few local politicians were also present. The local government has made all of the required preparations for the rituals. At the location, a small platform and a pandal were built. For a period of time, the area was cordoned off by the police, and vehicular travel was forbidden.

P.M Narendra Modi was among those who came to Shivaji Park to pay their tributes to the music legend. Three urns carrying Lata's ashes were handed over to Adinath, her brother's son, on Monday.
