  1. After one is over with worldly life, all matters remain between the soul and God. World life passes away quickly. Remember death and work on preparation for life hereafter for true success.

  2. Plz use actress for female
    It is our tendency to use actor for female also which shows that how male dominant society is now …..
    I don’t know her well but then also rip for her
