Dev Anand’s last rites held among tears and tributes At the birthday bash
Deceased Bollywood thespian Dev Anand was given a tearful goodbye on Saturday as his mortal remains were consigned to flames amid the tunes of some of his most memorable songs Abhi na jao chhor ke and Gata rahe mera dil.

Dev Anand’s last rites were held according to Hindu tradition at the Putney Vale Crematorium in London. His body kept in a casket, decked with flowers, was taken to the crematorium in a motorcade as his admirers paid him rich tributes.

The funeral ceremony was attended by a large number of people, including his family and close friends like Lord Meghnad Desai and Sahara chief Subroto Roy. But the star’s wife Kalpana Kartik could not attend as she had high blood pressure and remained behind in the Washington Mayfair hotel.

Besides his son Suneil and daughter Devina, his sister Bonnie Sareen, was also present. So were the acting High Commissioner of India Rakesh Prasad, his close friend Kartar Lalvani, Lord Karan Billimoria, and Baroness Shreela Flather.

“I am comforted that he is with the Lord. The spirit of Dev Anand will live forever,” said his son Suneil.

Dev Anand died on December 3 at the age of 88 with his son by his side.

While fans in India could not have a last glimpse of the star, his ashes will be flown back to Mumbai and a memorial service will be held at the Mehboob studio in Mumbai on December 15.
