Our Self-Written Obituaries – Anubhuti Krishna, aka Thatgirlinmuddyboots, Sector 9, Dwarka
The 154th death.
[Text and photos by Anubhuti Krishna]
This morning Anubhuti Krishna, aka Thatgirlinmuddyboots, was found dead in her bedroom amidst her pile of journals, ink pens, half-read books, and silver earrings. Her laptop was found beside her, her glasses were still on her nose. Her half-written notes suggest she was trying to fight the writer’s block yet again.
Ms Krishna is said to have been survived by her unfulfilled dreams and unrealistic aspirations. Some of which include seeing her book in print, being a famous writer, making a bank full of money and having thick wavy hair. Believed to be rude and arrogant by most, and obnoxious by many, she died an extremely anxious and partly depressed woman, albeit she did a fine job of masking her true emotions for years.
In the past few months she had made peace with many a demon in her head and had put them to good use by writing lyrical verses to the dead. Some of which were said to be A-one, but most were read by no one.
A die-hard romantic, Ms Krishna wished for everlasting love, a clean hand-loom draped home, and overflowing youth. In her last days she is said to have been deserted by those she had kept closest to her heart, and bruised by the ones she had held in great regard.
Since humans had started to fail her, she had found solace in places. She could love them without having to worry about being abandoned. In her notebooks, on the pages of her computer, in the pictures of her phone, one finds only places: beautiful, ugly, romantic, dirty. old, new, fast, slow. And if you look closer, among these places her ghost is said to flow.
