Our Self-Written Obituaries – Lalit Vijay, Lajpat Nagar, Delhi
The 220th death.
[Text and photos sent by Lalit Vijay]
Lalit Vijay, aged 87, was found dead near a degh somewhere in Koramangala, Bangalore; a place which he had relished since his college days.
The autopsy report claims it to be the overdose of biryani but, according to sources, his body had achieved Nirvana after eating two plates of Meghana Special. There’s a difference, you see.
Mr Vijay was a jolly fellow who tripped madly on Rahul Dravid, the cricketer; Shantaram, the novel and Begum, his wife and soulmate.
Amongst the few materialistic stuff found at his residence, there were souvenirs from Lord’s, posters of Virat Kohli, a photo frame with a picture of his family, a locket with green heart and a floppy hat hung on a wall.
Mr Vijay wanted his loved ones to remember him as a person who lived his life to the fullest. Also, he was dearly missed by the streeties, as they refused to wag their tails after being asked, “Oota Aaitha? (Had Food?)”, the day he passed away.
His diary reads, “People deserve to know the difference between Biryani and Pulao. I hope when they depart, knowing this realm of life, they would reach their ultimate paradise.”
