I am a huge fan of Varsha Bhonsle. Huge Huge fan. I even have a personal email response from her, from a few years back, that is most cherished.

She is currently in ICU. Doctors and Police are tight lipped about this being a suicide attempt or not. I hope not. She is a tough women.

For every Shabana Azmi we need a Shobha De. For every Barkha Dutt we need a Varsha Bhonsale. I am still not sure, why Varsha stopped writing those fiercely inspiring columns. I hope her art is revived. Amen.

This is shocking. I used to read her articles regularly too and would wait for the next one. She was fiery (intensely opinionated and ludircrous at times, but entertaining neverthless). Wish her a speedy recovery. I also kept wondering why she stopped writing.
