In an interview with a leading daily, Rahul said, “Sidharth was a different kind of person, he would not even like us mourning for him and I met his mother today who is also such a strong woman. She had tears in her eyes but she was strong and told me ‘death is obvious but said itna jaldi nahi hona chahiye tha (he should not have gone so soon)’. She is a mother and how can any mother see her son go away in her lifetime.”
