Our Self-Written Obituaries – Payu Tiwari, Bombay & Dublin
The 195th death.
[Text and photos sent by Payu Tiwari]
Despite issuing several proclamations of apocalyptic warnings to the masses about the consequences of patriarchy, Payu Tiwari died ignoring what she’d been warned of her whole life–daydreaming, as she crossed the bustling roads of Bombay, blushing at her dreams.
Unfortunately, they were rudely interrupted by a Toyota land cruiser with an invisible driver behind the wheel.
She will be remembered as a textbook example of embarrassment pulled off with elan, being passionate about music and Sorkin dialogue, declaring herself “spiritually attached” to Hamilton’s Angelica Schyler, along with her signature glare at anyone dispensing uninformed opinions about Indian cinema.
Also, for writing long sentences.
Her tombstone reads the words most frequently uttered by her in her larger than life existence–No one loves me back, really.
