Veda wrote, ‘I respect the messages received on the death of my Amma. You can imagine that my family is over without them. We are praying for my sister now. ‘
He said, ‘I have come negative and if you can respect my privacy then it will be good. My condolences to those who are going through this. ‘ India is facing the devastation caused by the second wave of epidemic and more than three lakh new cases of infections are being reported every day for the last few days.
