People paying last respects to the mortal remains of Zohra Sehgal in New Delhi.
In a conversation with Khushwant Singh published in the Telegraph in 2004, Zohra Sehgal had said: "When I go to sleep, I try to keep myself smiling. So that when I die, I have a smile on my lips. And I want electric cremation. I don’t want any poems or fuss after that. And for heaven’s sake, don’t bring back my ashes. Flush them down the toilet if the crematorium refuses to keep them. I tell all, if they tell you Ammi is dead, or my friends, ki Zohraji mar gayi, I want you to give a big laugh. Think about the funny things. My funny face."
Rest in peace
