Our Self-Written Obituaries – Anurag Dixit, Ashram

The 40th death.

[Text by Anurag Dixit; photo by Anjali Dixit]

The Unseen

He died
Before that, he trembled
And before that, he suffered

He suffered
Before that, he walked
He walked and he travelled
And before that, he explored

He explored
Before that he felt colours
And before that, he saw colours

He saw colours
Before that, he composed colours
And before that, he tuned colours

He tuned colours
Before that, he enjoyed
And before, he got excited

He was alive
He lived
He smiled
He was an artist who died.

    1. Yes, I agree. The new style was a welcome relief from the usual, monotonous style of over-imagination and exaggeration that one gets to see in these self-written obits.
