That walk to the ultimate destination and the reality… Embracing the tragedy, the discussions on its transport, its rituals, its formalities… The custom, the tradition, the visitors with the sadness and the embrace of consolation, the last rites, the carriage, the placement, the cremation… What to say what to put out where to put to… All laden with grief and departure.” (Also Read: Varun Dhawan Reacts To Kareena Kapoor Confirming His Engagement With Girlfriend, Natasha Dalal)
