Ab shuru se jeena seekhna padega. Mann nahi kar raha. (Nothing will be the same without Aai and Baba. Everything has been shattered in the past one month. My home, my dreams everything. My aai is not with me, neither is baba. Now I will have to learn from the beginning how to live and I don't feel like.)"

"Was I a good son? Did I do enough to save them? I'll have to live with these questions forever. Can't wait to see them again. I wish the day comes soon," he added.

A statement issued on behalf of Bhuvan's family read: "In loving memory of Bhuvan's beloved father Avnindra Bam (11.05.21) and mother Padma Bam (10.06.21), we are saddened to announce their passing within one month of each other, due to Covid-19.

"The past few months have been trying for the family, and we seek everyone's prayers, support, and sensitivity during this time of grief. To Bhuvan's fans and well-wishers, we request that you allow him time and space to grieve this immense loss. We carry Aai and Baba's blessings in our hearts forever." the statement further said.
