Our Self-Written Obituaries – Shashank Sharma, Ghaziabad
The 205th death.
[Text and photos sent by Shashank Sharma]
Shashank Sharma, 25, who went to bed after savoring his favorite chhole chawal from Karol Bagh, was found dead earlier this morning in what appears to be case of severe asphyxiation due to excessive crying on his pillow. His favorite pilot pen, a can of Thumbs-Up and few scribbled bits of paper were found next to him. Although sources say that Mr Sharma was seen fidgeting and stressed in the last few days, no suicide note was found.
Mr Sharma, a marketing enthusiast and a passionate writer, lived a life made out of eccentric choices and regrets. It was only after finishing his MBA that he realized the futility of money. He subsequently turned into a nihilist. He questioned the ways of the world and perpetually strived to find a meaning in his existence.
A branded misanthropist but a hardcore humanist, Mr. Sharma was known to be a believer in friendships rather than friends. A snob with a nerve of hardcore romantic in the world of Tinder, he was known to find happiness in his room, reading books, binging on TV series and scribbling stories. Taking his camera on solo travels was another hobby he pursued religiously. He couldn’t however go to his favourite destination, England.
Mr Sharma is survived by his so-called perfectionist of a dad, his excess-loving mom and a detached lawyer of a brother.
Gone at such a young age. May his soul rest in peace.
