With the demise of the great artist Dilip Kumar, not only has the golden era of Indian cinema drawn to an end, a corner of my own heart lies vacant.

He became a hugely popular actor owing to his immense acting talent. He will stay alive in minds of cine-goers and in the film industry due to his unforgettable acting. Alongside, as a person having deeply humane values and profound sensitivity, he shall also stay forever in the hearts of those who were blessed to receive his closeness.

Today as I grieve at the passing away of the thespian Dilip Kumar,I keep recalling the times and occasions spent in his company. It was DilipJi’s greatness that I could get his affection after just two-three telephonic conversations. He used to visit Uttar Pradesh and other states in this region due to political reasons in those days. After a few meetings, it became so that whenever he visited this area, especially Lucknow, he would stay at my residence at Sahara Sshaher. Once he stayed with me for four continuous days. Those days and their golden memories are permanently etched on my mindscape.
