'Blessed are those who wake up with purest sounds of nature', reads actor Vaibhavi Upadhyaya's last Instagram post
PTC Web Desk: Actor and Sarabhai vs Sarabhai fame Vaibhavi Upadhyaya's life was cut short on Wednesday. She died in a road accident in Himachal Pradesh's Kullu district.
She had shared her last post on Instagram a few weeks ago and posted a video on May 6 from her 2019 trip to Himachal and wrote about being grateful for 'perfect sensory, bodily health'. Several places, including Bir, Dharamshala, and Bhattu monastery in Keori were geo-tagged in the video.
In her last Instagram post, there is a picture of Vaibhavi as she looked away from the camera. She wrote, "Just last night in a silent moment of reflection."
She added, "After I’d just finished watching ‘Sound of Metal’, I was reminded of the gifts, the blessings, most of us are born with. And how brutally do we take it all for granted. Our perfect vision, hearing, the sense of touch, taste and smell are so basic yet so so crucial and instrumental to lead a perfectly healthy, happy and full life. Yet we seldom realise and feel it, let alone be grateful for it."
"Then the endless chain of thoughts lead me to remember my most favourite sound on earth, the rustling of leaves, I was always drawn to that sound ever since I was a child, being a city kid I was deprived of the sounds of nature, but our yearly school vacation trip to my mother’s native village would bring me these little moments of strange calmness. I couldn’t completely comprehend that feeling then, but I started to understand and appreciate it as I grew older. And has now turned into an ever growing longing," the actor added.
"Coincidentally today while doom scrolling, Instagram popped this reel of my highlights from my 2019 trip to the mountains. And thanks to that I was able to pen this, it would’ve otherwise gone into that chaotic oblivion of starkly varied thoughts and emotions I feel and experience everyday. Blessed are those who wake up with the purest sounds of nature, breathe clean fresh air, have uncomplicated, tiring but stress free routines, living their simple yet grand lives away from the madness we have come to call ‘the new normal’. ‘Basic’ is the new ‘Luxury’." said the actor.
"And on that note I congratulate those who have their perfect sensory and bodily health including myself. It is a reminder to be grateful for the most basic but most crucial gifts of life, OUR HEALTH. Know it, feel it, maintain it, celebrate it. Love and gratitude," she concluded.
Vaibhavi was cremated in Mumbai on Wednesday. She was best known for the TV series 'Sarabhai vs Sarabhai'. She died in Kullu after her car fell into a gorge.
