एक आदर्श बेटी , एक आदर्श बहन , एक आदर्श पत्नी , एक आदर्श माँ , एक आदर्श समधी , एक आदर्श सास , और एक आदर्श मित्र, हमसे आज सदा के लिए दूर चली गयीं ।
जीवन में कुछ क्षण ऐसे होते हैं , जिन्हें शोक की शांति का आदर मिलना चाहिए  !🙏

Amitabh Bachchan also wrote:

that silence of the clothing depicting the mourning hour.. they convey in our culture that all is not well, or that it be known and the silent passings be in respect of the moment..

..the rites are over.. to ashes they have been reduced.. a crowded hall in the home filled with the close knitted relatives and dear friends, embrace break down hold hands, hold.. 

..and the silence of condolence gradually creeps in..

..polite conversation, of reminisce, of association, of happy times spent together, of the fight and struggle for the ailment for years.. and most of all the loneliness of them that are left behind.. the vacuum.. the emptiness.. the presence that filled up the entire home.. lost and gone

Ritu Nanda was married to industrialist Rajan Nanda, who died in 2018. They have two children -- son Nikhil, who is married to Amitabh's daughter Shweta, and daughter Natasha.
