Actress-comedian Mallika Dua’s mother Dr. Padmavati aka Chinna Dua passed away last week on June 11 after fighting a long battle with covid-19. Today, June 16, she immersed her mother’s ashes. She took to Instagram and shared a picture and penned an emotional note. In her post, she called her mother her greatest love and promised her that she will follow her legacy.
Sharing the picture she wrote, “Bye my Chinna. My sweet girl. My first and greatest love. The weather was just perfect. You sent the best breeze, it was green, the sun was there but warm and lovely. It’s where I picture you are right now. With paati. She is making you filter coffee and muruku and you are chilling. In a really beautiful place and very very happy. That’s how I will live too. Just like you. With courage, grace, boundless kindness, and above all, joy.
“I promise to love myself no less than you love me, I promise to help everyone I can and I promise to be happy because how dare I dishonor your legacy. My mama is god. And God is always always looking out for me. I promise I will live a good life with integrity and love. Promise my mama”, she added.
Earlier, Mallika Dua took to her Instagram story on Saturday and wrote, “She left us last night. My whole heart. My whole life. The only god I know. My amma I am sorry I couldn’t save you. You fought so hard my mama. My precious. My heart. You are my whole life.”
In the next story, she wrote, “It’s not about my loss and grief. It’s about a life cut short. I always knew I didn’t deserve her. But she deserved to live. I don’t know if I will ever be able to pray again.”
