As the deadline of final farewell was nearing close, the news broke out that his wife Kamala Devi, 85, breathed her last in a hospital in Thrissur within hours after the death of her husband. The news shocked 
their relatives and friends who wondered at the will of the almighty.
The funeral was rescheduled and both the husband and wife were given a teary adieu at about 5 pm.
