Our Self-Written Obituaries – Supratim Bhattacharjee, Mankar Village, West Bengal
The 151st death.
[Text and self-photos by Supratim Bhattacharjee]
Sleep eluded him most of the nights but today he finally caught hold of Hypnos, the God of Sleep.
Supratim Bhattacharjee, known to his friends as Supu, was found dead this morning on his bed with his eyes fixated at the ceiling fan. He still had the faint smile peaking through his famously draping mustache.
The cause of death is said to be overdosing on memes.
Mr Bhattacharjee’s phone was by his side with his Instagram homepage still getting auto-refreshed with unread messages.
He will forever be remembered for his ability to make jokes out of even the worst scenarios just to make his mates laugh. He also never missed the opportunity to call out someone on their wrong doings. He never hesitated to make his voice heard.
But very few people knew of the storm raging within him, not to speak of his personal demons.
Mr Bhattacharjee is survived by his collection of books, movies and song collection.
