With over 1500 songs to her credit, in several languages, over 45 years, Anuradha Paudwal has been the recipient of innumerable awards including the Mother Teresa Award, the National Award, four-time Filmfare Award and the recent acknowledgement as the Cultural Ambassador to devotional music at the UK Houses of Parliament, among many others.

But to the singer who is humility-personified, the Maharashra Gaurav Puraskar - Maharashtra Ki Shaan will be a memorable one. She received the award at the hands of Nitin Gadkari, Hon. Minister of Road Transport & Highways of India at Trident, BKC.

Paudwal, who is known for her timeless Marathi songs, including Kalya Maateet, Raja Lalkari, Bandini, Shambho Shankara among others, avers, "It's a great feeling to be recognized in your own home! This award means a lot to me personally. I feel humbled. It is the love of the people that keeps me going."

Besides her timeless music that takes her across the world, Paudwal has a social bent of mind and works towards medical aid and basic amenity issues in rural India, as well as aiding families of martyrs.
