However, she had gathered the broken pieces of her heart and had begun the second innings of her life for the sake of their child.
It was on June 7, 2020, when Chiranjeevi Sarja had taken his last breath at the mere age of 39 after he had suffered a cardiac arrest.

“You and me … for eternity, there never was one like you, and there will be none like you… YOU, CHIRU… the ONE and ONLY. LOVE YOU .”

“See for me, till June 7, life had been a certain way from my childhood as I wanted but the universe had a different message. One day, everything changed and if something that drastically changed, something again might change drastically for me as well. Especially when you have welcomed a child, something so innocent, raring to go, eager about life, why will I live with a mindset that this is not going to get better? How can it not get better, of course, it has to, I have Chiru's child with me, it has obviously had to get."
