His wife, Sutapa Sikdar and son Babil have shared pictures of his grave that was decked with red roses.

Some days back, Shekhar Suman had shared the picture of Irrfan’s son Ayaan tending to his grave. He tweeted, “This is d late actor Irrfan Khan’s grave. Does it teach anything about life? After all the fame n adulation, International acclaim, you lie alone in an unkempt grave. Can the industry wake up and at least get this place done in white marble wid a loving epitaph?”. In the new picture, we can see that a white enclosure has been made around it. We can see that Late Sahabzade Irrfan Ali Khan is written in a black plaque. The grave is covered in roses.

I’ll tell you something: every day people are dying. And that’s just the beginning. Every day, in funeral homes, new widows are born, new orphans. They sit with their hands folded, trying to decide about this new life. Then they’re in the cemetery, some of them for the first time. They’re frightened of crying, sometimes of not crying. Someone leans over, tells them what to do next, which might mean saying a few words, sometimes throwing dirt in the open grave. And after that, everyone goes back to the house, which is suddenly full of visitors. The widow sits on the couch, very stately, so people line up to approach her, sometimes take her hand, sometimes embrace her. She finds something to say to everbody, thanks them, thanks them for coming. In her heart, she wants them to go away. She wants to be back in the cemetery, back in the sickroom, the hospital. She knows it isn’t possible. But it’s her only hope, the wish to move backward. And just a little, not so far as the marriage, the first kiss. by #Louise Gluck#Nobelprize#celebratinglifeand deathAdvertisement
His son, Babil also shared a picture of the grave and wrote how he was watching Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker once again. The science fiction film made in 1979 is considered as one of the cult movies to come out of the erstwhile Soviet Union. He wrote, “Here’s to watching ‘Stalker’ with you for my first film essay three years ago, I’m watching ‘Stalker’ now for the last dissertation. I pause the film from time to time, just like you did with me, to take it all in, you were teaching me then, now I teach myself. Here’s to you, who never hardened, here’s to your forgiving, sensitive soul.”
