Meri toh zindagi chali gayi.” Shikha further said, “Sab logon ne bahut prayer ki, doctors ne bhi puri koshish ki… hum sab ne bahut koshish ki… hum sab ko bahut hasaya. Upar ja ke waha bhi hasaye sab ko, khush rahe shanti se rahe. Thank you so much.” (There is nothing left to say. My life has ended now. Everyone prayed for him, doctors also tried their best, we all tried our best. They all made us laugh and I am sure in heaven too they are making everyone laugh. Rest in peace. Thank you! His friends have supported us a lot).
