Before that, I had heard that people just assumed that mein duniya mein nahi raha. I am no more.”
Harish Patel continued, “I used to wonder why didn’t people check with me once before jumping to such conclusions. Google search hi kar lete ke ke kahan gaya Harish Patel, mar gaya ya zinda hai. Just because mein yahan kaam nahi kar raha tha, ya dikh nahi raha tha, toh bas bol diya ke nahi raha”.
