Aman Verma: No one is talking about what is happening in our country. Things are spiralling out of control

Apr 25, 2021 03:05 PM IST

The actor, who lost his mother recently, says he hadn’t met his mum since before the pandemic and later, didn’t want to as he was shooting, and scared “she would get Covid due to me. Now, she is gone.”

Aman Yatan Verma lost his mother, Kailash Verma, on 18 April and had shared an emotional note on Instagram. The actor says he hadn’t met his mum since before the pandemic and later, didn’t want to as he was shooting, and was “scared she would get Covid-19 due to me. Now, she is gone. She passed away 12 minutes before I reached the hospital. It is something that will stay with me,” says Verma.

Aman Verma has been voicing his opinion on social media, wondering why none of the big wigs and celebrities are talking about the situation.

On 11 April, his 79-year-old mother slipped at home and two days later, was admitted to a Noida hospital. “Though she tested negative for Covid, she had other health complications including hypertension and obesity. Five days later, the oxygen saturation in her body reduced to a dangerous level and then, the inevitable happened. It was at the crematorium in Noida, where I realised the gravity of the pandemic and the second wave. It was heart-breaking and scary to see the queued up ambulances. Though last rites are supposed to be scared, but the electric crematorium got so crowded that eventually, they had to cremate non-Covid with Covid patients at the same time. It was scary,” he states.

Verma has been voicing his opinion on social media, wondering why none of the big wigs and celebrities are talking about the situation. “No one is talking about what is happening in our country. Things are spiralling out of control. Every day, we are trying to hang in there. A lot of people are going through worse, including youngsters dying due to Covid just because they didn’t get medical help in time. People are going through losses and every day one hears of news of colleagues and peers passing away. It is a difficult time for everyone. This is one phase that the whole world will remember together,” he says.

It has been a difficult phase for him and his family and he advises people to take care and not step out. “Unfortunately, as an actor, I can’t work online and have to be physically out there for work and have to take the risk,” he concludes.
