The legendary singer and Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar on September 23 appealed her fans and well-wishers to remember and donate for the brave Indian soldiers guarding our borders.

In a recent media interaction, Lata Mangeshkar mentioned that she won’t celebrate her birthday. She said, ”Not when our soldiers have died so brutally in Uri. My sincere request to my well-wishers, please don’t waste money buying me flowers. Instead send money to the bereaved family of martyrs. Jo shaheed huey hain unki zaraa yaad karo qurbani.”

The legendary singer added, ”Everything has changed. Human beings and even the climate is now unpredictable. Extreme weather conditions play havoc with our lives. I am deeply saddened to see children suffer in natural calamities and during war.”
