Our Self-Written Obituaries – Vikas Singh, Bangalore
The 189th death.
[Text and photos sent by Vikas Singh]
Vikas Singh has died at 34. He was afraid of death and whatever he was afraid of happened to him; traveling, loneliness, failures and now death. Life forced him to love the things which he was afraid of, may he love the death as well.
Mr Singh’s wife said she would publish his thesis, as well as the notes and poems he had written to her. She is doing so, apparently, to convince her daughter and son that their father was great. She never gave up on him.
He was an over-ambitious man but wasn’t working that hard for the goals; many guessed his interrogative nature was an obstacle. He used to question all and himself; on why the things are the way they are. Sometimes he found answers, mostly not; he was loaded with unanswered baggage.
He wanted to be famous by his solutions for agrarian crisis. Not that his views were very original but not much discussed.
Lately, he convinced himself of parking the ambitions and questions to live a “worldly” life with his children and ailing parents but the accident killed him.
