The shadow of an impending tragedy hung over some of the last tweets of Sunanda Pushkar. "joh hona hota hai woh hokayrahega. "Hastay huay jayengey (sic) (whatever is destined to happen will happen. will go smiling)" it read.

This was followed by another tweet three minutes later in which she replied to one of her friends enquiring about her health. "will try, got so many issues diagnosed in KIMS that now who knows when I got 2 go with joy hastay huey jayengey (sic)."

She also wondered aloud on Twitter why her fight with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar over an alleged extra-marital affair with her husband was grabbing so much media attention.

"Guys btw this is a personal affair why is it headline news? All u have achieved is Mehr telling lies & her 5 mins of fame I have all the bbm (sic)," was her tweet at 6am on Friday.

Embattled with a twitter war with Tarar, a Pakistani journalist, for allegedly "hitting on" on her husband, Sunanda was actively replying to tweets from others and in reply to one such she had said "sadly it's not the men it's the woman who hit on a man when the wife is out 2 get treated how gross."

She had even replied to one tweet which suggested that she should stay off the controversy saying " LOL I don't care about that but does a woman have to berate me 2 do that. my husband wants 2B with her I am the last one to stop."
