A woman always has her man, but the man unconsciously leans on his roots, his heritage. He feels like an orphan without his parents.
Once, he was chosen to play Ram in a small Ramleela company, but his parents were against it.
I think we brothers realised his loss more and more as we grew older. We actually grew closer after his death.
