Amitabh Bachchan wrote beautiful lines about Ritu Nanda, who passed away in the early morning of January 14th.
Nanda is Bachchans & # 39; samdhan& # 39 ;; the mother-in-law of his daughter Shweta Bachchan.
As soon as the Bachchans heard the news, they rushed to Delhi to attend the funeral.
We present the beautiful words of Big B on his blog:
The soft knock at work … the hasty expression of concern … the hours of searching for midnight in most parts of the world … shuffling footsteps, quietly anxious and disturbed conversations … and then in an instant … the lights go out
.. She is gone
.. distance and absence increase the grief .. feeling of loss, concern for those at your side, and the need to be in the embrace of those who see and suffer exactly that .. these are the incomprehensible moments that the day in the day of life throws at us
.. faces wear gloom .. uncertainties to be there .. rushed accumulation of travel and grief in a relentless combination .. a whole night full of possibilities and non-possibilities .. and finally the departure of some .. the others later
.. this silence of clothing that represents the hour of mourning .. it conveys in our culture that everything is not right or that it is known and the silent passages are related to the moment
.. the rites are over .. they have been reduced to ashes .. a crowded hall in the house, filled with closely knit relatives and dear friends, hugging, breaking, holding hands, holding
.. and the silence of condolences gradually creeps in
.. polite conversation, memory, reunification, happy times together, years of struggle and struggle for illness .. and above all the loneliness of those who stayed behind .. the vacuum .. the emptiness. … the presence that filled the whole house … lost and gone
.. this empty favorite chair .. this corner of preference .. the unbroken care and concern for everyone, if they are present, suddenly no longer exist
.. the voice of the bird building its little nest heard nothing more .. the delicate nest that shed its efforts to make .. the command to control authority was suddenly missing
.. Attempts by several for pleasant conversations that represent the times spent with her .. Expressions and attitudes just before she breathed her last time .. Indications that she was known .. Words that had never been spoken before
.. it is sometimes the knowledge of an end in its vicinity
.. only you would know it .. and only you would never be able to share it!
.. the unknown invisible curse of life, known that it will happen and the expectation that it will never happen to us
..some moments deserve the silence of condolences .. for those who have been lost to us .. prayers
.. an ideal daughter, an ideal sister, an ideal woman, an ideal mother, an ideal mother-in-law, an ideal mother-in-law and an ideal friend .. has left us forever at a distance that we cannot cover. , for now!!
