That Makar Sankranti, we all were chatting when Shubhangi said Let us enjoy all we can, now. I wont be here for Republic Day function. I never thought it will literally happen that way, said Rohini Humne, Shubhangis sister-in-law.
On the fateful day, Shubhangi and her husband were on their way to Poladpur to attend her sisters engagement. She was very happy as she was going to her village. We were standing on the road side when the bus hit her, said Suryakant More, Shubhangis husband.
It took Humne three months to come to terms with the truth.
The worst affected was Shubhangis elder daughter who is in class VI now. They were like friends. She was completely shattered. Even now she remembers her at least twice a day, said Humne.
She wasnt educated but wanted her daughters to study. She had bought a sewing machine so that she could supplement their income, added Rohini.
