Ashish Choudhary angry, inconsolable over kin's death

Ashish Choudhary Actor Ashish Choudhary is angry and inconsolable over the loss of his sister and brother-in-law in the Mumbai terror attacks last week.

His sister Monica Chhabaria and her husband Ajit had gone to the Tiffin restaurant of the Oberoi Trident Hotel, which was held under siege by terrorists for more than two days before the NSG commandoes neutralised the threat. During the time the siege lasted, Ashish kept waiting outside the hotel, hoping that his kin would walk out alive. But when the siege ended and the news of their death came, the actor was devastated.

In an open letter to media, Ashish said he is still in a state of shock and has yet to come to terms with the loss of people close to his heart.

"I am not yet in the frame of mind to talk or deal or replay the destruction of my family and their souls, but I would still thank all those who stood by, called, sent messages and comforted me at a time when my whole world collapsed," Ashish wrote.

Ashish added that he is deeply angered by all that happened.

"I'm angry, really angry. I stood there helpless while a few strangers came and snatched away pieces of my hearts. I could do nothing and asked just one question, why? The answer was a cruel silence that numbed me."

The actor went on to write that he is inconsolable.

"There is no solace, there is no way on earth anybody can tell any of us to console ourselves. This hurt will stay forever. The gaping wound will never heal and the anger will only stay hidden," he said.

Monica was the actor's only sister and he says that he is able to keep his emotions under control because of the couple's daughters - Kanishq and Ananaya aged 12 and seven.

"If there is anything that can hold me together now and not let me crumble fully, are the two small innocents who in a matter of seconds lost their parents," he said.

"The children waited, not understanding why their parents haven't returned from dinner yet. Those are the two lives that are holding me and my family together, urging us to be strong," said Ashish.

The horrifying attacks robbed children of the care and love of their parents, but the actor is firm that the kids will not be deprived of anything even after the death of their parents.

"The one thing that I really want Monica and Jiju (brother-in-law) to know is that their children will always have a second set of parents in Samita (Ashish's wife) and me. We will be there in every way we can to look after them," said Ashish.
