Goa Governor Mridula Sinha on Thursday expressed the hope that Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar who died on March 17 after a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer, would be reborn.
"We know everyone dies. But it's also believed in our society that the dead person returns in another form. The personality is born again," Sinha said, while extolling the virtues of late Chief Minister during a condolence meeting, organised by the Goa government here.
She also recalled instances of Parrikar's humility, including when he as the Chief Minister had chosen to hold her bag at the airport, when she was only a BJP office-bearer.
Sinha said legends about Parrikar's life would be retold like grandmother's tales and folk tales to coming generations.
