2790 : Irrfan Khan

Irrfan Khan dies and the outburst of collective grief is unprecedented. I personally feel its much more than what saints of political leaders inspire because for a lot of that lot (saints/political leaders I mean.....also "lot of the lot" has a nice ring na....) the grief or the emotion is often mirrored/manufactured. This means you feel something when a leader has died, but in shock, and less of grief.

With Irrfan Khan it feels (especially to people I am talking), that the grief is personal. Its mine. It's yours. It's ours.

Maybe that is what true art (and hence an artist is). It binds and makes everything personal again.

RIP Irrfan. Long Live Irrfan.
