Talking about Lata ji’s final moments, ANI quoted Dr Patit Samdani as saying, “Whenever Lata ji’s health deteriorated, I would have treated her, but this time her condition was deteriorating day by day. Though we continued our efforts eventually we could not save her.. I will remember her smile for the rest of my life. Even in her final moments, she had a smile on her face. Since the past few years, her health was not good and hence she was not able to meet much with anyone.”
