Surekha Sikri is proof that age has nothing to do with beauty, so why are so many people sharing her 'youthful' picture while expressing their grief?

I see a lot people expressing grief over the passing of Surekha Sikri using an old photo of hers, when she was a young woman with fiery, kohl-rimmed eyes.
If it was a part of a series of pics commemorating her vast repertoire, a life well-lived, it would be understandable. But to only use the a pic of her as a 20-something-year-old when the woman who died was 76, is ageist and sexist. It is declaring that a 76-year-old woman is not beautiful, and only when you stare into her 20-year-old eyes you’d feel the regret of her passing.
Do we become less vital, less important, less beautiful now once we age? If so, why? A friend asked this question, do we equate beauty with fuckability? And old people, cancel that, old women are not desirable?
Same thing happened when Zohra Sehgal passed, pictures of her as an attractive young woman surfaced, to shock us that the funny old woman used to be young and therefore beautiful, and then of course she stopped being desirable, marketable.
This is of course true only of women, who turn into old hags while men transform into silver foxes!
The actor Ayushmann Khurrana talks about the time when he dropped Surekha Sikri home and she was hoping she’d find more work. The tonality of that was also of senior woman still needing employment.
But this was a woman at the peak of her craft, the fire in her eyes hadn’t faded. I sure she’d have played a lover with just as much abandon as she did her grandmother roles. But nobody would offer them to an old woman, would they.

Sabina Chopra, the co-founder, and COO of Yatra.com is not afraid of taking risks and exploring new challenges.
Sabina Chopra took the idea of “If you do what you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life”, a step further.
As a woman in my 20s, I often feel time is running out and the time graph of when to achieve success is short. More times than not, we tend to concentrate on our luck and opportunities rather than the work that we should be putting in.
Sabina Chopra might be one story that every ambitious woman should keep in her pocket while we do the grunt work.
