Today, February 14 is the Valentine’s Day. This is the day that legendry Madhubala was born in on 14th February 1933. She is said to have pined for love during her short life. She was diagnosed as having a hole in her heart which could not be set right in that period when heart surgery was still to develop. She died, on February 1967 and was buried in the then Bombay’s Juhu cemetery.
Though we kept on remembering Madubala and her films, but overlooked her final resting place. The news came in February 2010 (http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2010-02-11/mumbai/28121815_1_ground-islamic-law-new-graves)that her grave has been disposed off and tomb demolished.
One does not know what is the status today but does she not deserve to rest in peace? Would it not be possible for her numerous admirers to chip in to ensure her a grave and a decent memorial? I for one would be willing to make a small contribution.
