Well, India is known for a country where the Taj Mahal was built under the memory and to pay tribute to Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s deceased wife- Mumtaj Mahal. People have different ways to express love towards the ones who have left for the heavenly traverse, many people dedicate certain parts or things of their lives as a remembrance of their loved ones (dead). In one of the ways to keep his wife’s presence forever, a man in India unveiled a lifelike wax statue of his deceased wife on Saturday.
According to the reports of the local media, the man has inaugurated his bungalow in India’s Karnataka as his wife wanted to see a bungalow of theirs. Srinivasa Gupta, 57, got the idea of building the bungalow after his wife- Madhavi’s demise three years ago. Madhavi reportedly died in a car crash which left the family numb for a while, with a huge loss.
Also, it was reported by The News Minute that the man had spoken and consulted around 25 architects before he finally chose the one who would construct the lively statue of her wife. While talking to the reporters, Gupta said, “I don’t regret it at all, this is the kind of gesture I was looking for. I placed the order about a year ago. I gave them several pictures of my wife. She looks so real.”
Apparently, the quick part was that Gupta didn’t inform his family about this and it went as a surprise to them with the unveiling of the statue. Everyone was almost brought into tears with the amazing surprise Gupta had for them in-store. “Everyone was so surprised. They all believed for a few seconds that it could actually be my wife. It was my wife’s dream to construct a bungalow. Now she is not there to live in it. The statue is a way to reinforce that she is still here.”
