A heart-wrenching example of how heartless people can be was seen in Mumbai where an NRI techie reached his home only to discover his mom’s fully dressed skeleton. The mom-son duo had not been in touch after April 2016.The depressed old lady had told him that she wanted to go to an old age home as she couldn’t bear to live alone anymore.

The 63-year-old widow Asha Sahani’s skeleton was discovered from her Oshiwara apartment in Mumbai where she lived alone. HT report quotes deputy commissioner of police Paramjit Singh Dahiya as saying, “Rituraj is the son from Asha’s first husband and she stayed with her second husband, who also died in 2013. The flats belonged to him. Rituraj is a Non Residential Indian (NRI) and was staying in the US for a long time.”


“On Sunday, Rituraj landed in India unannounced. He reached Lokhandwala complex in Andheri, where his mother lived, around 4.30pm and rang the doorbell. But the door was locked from inside. He then called a key maker and the door was opened.On entering Rituraj found his mother’s skeleton,” a senior police officer said to TOI.

Her husband had died in 2013 following which her maid and driver had also left the job which meant she used to live alone.Members of the society have claimed that when they couldn’t reach her for the maintenance bills 6 months back they had informed the police.
However, police have refuted the claims. A case of accidental death was recorded by the Oshiwara police.

This heart wrenching and shameful incident shows how heartless we are becoming day by day. How can someone not even bother to know why his mother has not called for last one year? What’s the use of that money when it can’t even provide a respectful death to your parents and family members?
