It has been a year since Irrfan Khan left us. His demise did not only break hearts in Bollywood but also left everyone numb in Hollywood.
Today on the first death anniversary of the Angrezi Medium star, his wife Sutapa Sikdar made a heartfelt note on social media. She recalled some fond memories with him.
Sutapa started the note by quoting lines from Irrfan’s favourite poet. ““People living deeply have no fear of death”… Anaïs Nin your favourite poet Irrfan. Last year tonight me and my friends sang songs for you, all your favorite songs. The nurses were looking at us strangely as they were used to religious chants in critical times but I had overdone that for you irrfan morning evening and night for two years and since they told me it was time I wanted you to go with memories you loved …so we sang songs….next day you left for the next station I hope you knew where to get down without me. 363 days eight thousand seven hundred and twelve hours..when each second is counted. how exactly does one swim this huge ocean of time. The clock had stopped.”
She also mentioned his keen interest in the mystery of numbers. She wrote, “At 11.11 on 29th april for me .…irrfan you had a keen interest in mystery of numbers . .and funny you had three 11’s on your final day . some say actually many say this is a very mystical number 11/11/11.How does one walk ahead the pandemic just adds to the anxiety, fear and pain” .
