    Tribute To Sridevi

    You’re the only one I see,
    I turn around,
    and your right behind me.
    we never wanted you to go,
    but now you’re just the wind that blows.
    Why did you leave us,
    without saying goodbye,
    you are the one who haunts our dreams,
    you are the tears that we cry.
    You meant so much to us,
    it’s too hard to believe,
    that you’re no longer here,
    We saw you but you just disappeared.
    If you came back,
    the one thing I would say:
    Don’t leave today.Recommend

    The Dubai Public Prosecution has started an investigation into the untimely demise of Bollywood actress Sridevi, who was found dead in a bathtub at her hotel room.
    the laboratory results revealed she had consumed alcohol and was in an inebriated state when she slipped and fell into the bathtub that was filled with water.
    she did not suffer a cardiac arrest like how it was reported earlier.Recommend
