देहिहि अनल न दहि सकइ , भेइ सकइ नहिं नीर ,
सोखि न सकइ समीर तेहि , भेदि सकइ नहिं तीर ।
आत्मा को आग नहीं जला सकती , भिगो सकता नहीं पानी,
सुखा नहीं सकती हवा उसे , भेद सकता नहीं तीर ।
Abhishek, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Rishi and Randhir Kapoor, Riddhima and Boney Kapoor attended Rajan Nanda's funeral on Monday.
On Monday, Big B mourned the death of Rajan Nanda and wrote in a blog: "My relative Mr Rajan Nanda, Nikhil's father and father-in-law of Shweta, just passed away. Leaving for India," said the megastar, adding: "Yes, the personal tragedy is now in disclosure and transmitted... but it had a lead... a lead of distress and anxiety and apprehension from a time of some immediate length... the obvious nested facts were not pressed into the print of this page, but there were hidden hints of them in it. My hidden heart can bleed within... unseen... but it takes not away the pain of its emission."
