The country bid adieu to one of their biggest & favourite superstars, Sridevi yesterday after she breathed her last on Saturday evening in a Dubai hotel. The days following her death must have been unimaginably grief-stricken for her entire family, especially her 2 lovely daughters and her husband, Boney Kapoor.
Several members of the industry, the media and hundreds of fans gathered yesterday to pay their last respects to the iconic actress. The love & memories have been pouring non stop – such was the magnitude of her existence. Last night, Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to dedicate a beautiful shayari, written by Kaifi Azmi, to Sridevi.

"रहने को सदा देहर में आता नहीं कोई
तुम जैसे गये ऐसे भी जाता नहीं कोई"~ कैफ़ि आज़मी.
देहर – means .. the world .
Javed Akhtar narrated this sher to me at funeral of Sridevi .. said it was written at time of Guru Dutt demise ; but so appropriate for today ..

This is so heart-achingly true.
