Sushma Swaraj’s rich legacy

August 17 2019

August 9 witnessed a huge crowd at Dr Ambedkar International Center at 15 Janpath, New Delhi. It was the emotional ‘Uthawani’ of late Sushma Swaraj, who touched several lives via her twitter handle and was regarded as a shining comet in Indian politics. The hall failed to accommodate the large gathering, as a result, several people were observed paying their last respects on the screen outside the hall. Despite being a private family event, the senior leaders, foreign diplomats and ministers were seen pouring in for last respect. Within no time, several VIPs reached the hall which led to shortage of chairs in the front rows, and Shahnawaz Hussain vacated his chair for Ranjan Bhattacharya.
BJP leaders Manoj Tiwari, Nishikant Dubey were seen standing near the main gate, while Shabana Azmi appeared quite emotional. Despite ill health, Murali Manohar Joshi also marked his tribute. EAM S Jaishankar, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Dr Harsh Vardhan, Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar and BJP Working President JP Nadda were also seen. Vijay Goel and Manoj Tiwari were seen receiving the people at the gate, while the entire task of management was handled by Sudhanshu Mittal. Everyone knows that Sushma ji was one of the devote worshipers of Lord Krishna, hence ‘Jai Radha Madhav, Jai Kunj Bihari Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna Hare Hare’ tune was played on the landline of Sushma Ji’s house, which shows her immense belief in Lord Krishna.
Sushma’s favourite colour was blue and the favourite numeral- number 8, as a result be it home or car ‘8’ ruled everywhere. Her affection for Krishna can be gauged from the fact that even before kidney transplant, Sushma once said that ‘it’s all up to Krishna now; he’s the best decider for me’. The atmosphere became very emotional when the Manchasin singer troupe started singing Sushma ji’s favourite bhajan, listening to the same, her husband Swaraj Kaushal and daughter Bansuri Swaraj broke down. Bansuri came on the stage for a very brief address and said that her mother roared like a lioness in the Parliament, but she used to laugh like 5-year-old. With her notable Hindi vocabulary and wonderful selection of words, she proved that she is the true authority of her mother’s glorious heritage.
