As the queen of melody turned a year older, she said she will not celebrate her birthday this time.
In an interview to Zee News on Friday, the singer said that God had given her a lot and all that she wished for now was the love and blessings of her fans.
Speaking to the channel, Lata said, "I thank my fans for their love and blessings."
She also revealed that she never liked celebrating her birthday and all she did on the day was to spend some time with relatives, either at their place or her place.
"I just like being at home," she told the channel.
Starting her career at the age on 13, her contribution to the Indian music industry has spanned over seven decades.
She has recorded songs for over a thousand Hindi films and has sung songs in over thirty-six regional Indian languages and foreign languages, though primarily in Marathi and Hindi.
She is the elder sister of singers Asha Bhosle, Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar and Meena Mangeshkar.
She is the second vocalist to have ever been conferred the prestigious Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour.
The goddess of music, as referred in India, has featured in the Guinness Book of World Records from 1974 to 1991 for having made the most recordings in the world.
The claim was that she had recorded approximately 25,000 solo, duet, and chorus-backed songs in 20 Indian languages between 1948 to 1974.
