Dear Suneil!Although Iam a senior Citizen but I feel that in my twenties I watched GUIDE for about 30 times(eachtime trying to explore something new (the romance,spiritualism, female psychology and what not? Dont worry, it happens every life- people just use U as ladder to achieve their goal and then dr0p the ladder so that none else can use it again. I dont still believe that he is no more because "He was a living legend and will continue tobe so for ever" I shall look upto Navketan rising and rising............
He was the most handsome actor but his acting skills were limited.He exuded youthful energy.Mohd Rafi and Kishore kumar's voices contributed a great to his popularity.He should have called quits long ago.Instead he went on making films which were flops.A man must know when to retire gracefully and the older generations would have remembered him as the Dev of the 50's and 60's rather than the old man of the 90's.

He need not have called it quits but at the same time should not have accepted that the present generation would treat him the same way his ncontemperories did
Besides he did not accept from heart the spirit behind his Hum Donmo Song " My Zindagi ka sath nibhata chala gaya. An older song from Nao Do Gyarah "Hum Hai Rahi Pyar Ke"expreswsing similar Philosophy and equally melodious was rarely mentioned in the media tributes.

he was ok but it seems that he forgot that he has grown old while the world remembered his age. He still wanted to be a hero in his later films, but rumors has it that he had sowed quite a few wild oats even with failing health
