Sharing a picture of herself and two others, gazing at a river with their arms around each other, Mallika Dua wrote, "Bye my Chinna. My sweet girl. My first and greatest love. The weather was just perfect. You sent the best breeze, it was green, the sun was there but warm and lovely. It’s where I picture you are right now. With paati. She is making you filter coffee and muruku and you are chilling. In a really beautiful place and very very happy."+
She continued, "That’s how I will live too. Just like you. With courage, grace, boundless kindness and above all, joy. I promise to love myself no less than you love me, I promise to help everyone I can and I promise to be happy because how dare I dishonour your legacy. My mama is god. And god is always always looking out for me. I promise I will live a good life with integrity and love. Promise my mama."
Actors Parineeti Chopra, Shweta Tripathi Sharma, Amyra Dastur, Tillotama Shome, Gauahar Khan, Sanya Malhotra, and Mahira Khan, among several others, took to the comments section to pay condolences.
Dr Padmavati Dua, or Chinna, as she was affectionately known, died on June 12. Both she and her husband, journalist Vinod Dua, had been hospitalised due to Covid-19.
Mallika Dua had shared a message on Instagram following her mother's death. "She left us last night. My whole heart. My whole life. The only god I know. My Amma I'm sorry I couldn't save you. You fought so hard my mama. My precious. My heart. You're my whole life," she wrote. "It's not about my loss and grief. It's about a life cut short. I always knew I didn't deserve her. But she deserved to live. I don't know if I will ever be able to pray again," she added.
