Malavika’s Mumbaistan: Gone But Not Forgotten

It’s been five months since the untimely passing of late politician and legal luminary Arun Jaitley, and as to be expected, his death has left a palpable void in the lives of his legion of friends and admirers in the capital. So when they received an invitation for the wedding reception of his son Rohan for this weekend, it brought a poignant smile to their lips. The reason is that the card was addressed jointly from ‘Sangeeta and Arun Jaitley’, with no mention of the latter’s passing, as though he were still very much around. “It’s been a very, very difficult time for his near and dear ones,” says a member of his inner circle. “He was a real people’s person and his ready wit, all-encompassing consideration and warmth, and his brilliant anecdotes related to his favourite foods, are hard to replace. Despite his busy schedule and health considerations, we would meet almost three-four times a week, and he would regale us with stories from his incredible memory and experiences. So when we received the card with his name very much at the top and with no attachment of ‘late’ before his name or any reference to his passing, it reflected what we have been experiencing:that he is very much alive in the hearts and minds of his family and friends,” the member said. The wedding reception of Rohan and Meher, daughter of Alka and Jaideep Anand, will take place this Saturday at the Jaitley residence, and in keeping with the departed statesmen’s wishes, will be understated and low key. We wish the couple every happiness.
