Our Self-Written Obituaries – Triveni Shukla, Sukna Village, Darjeeling
The 158th death.
[Text and photos sent by Triveni Shuklar]
Life just ended when it finally got figured out. She once declared on Instagram that “Only Art, Cats and Shopping” truly made her happy. This was not entirely true because her soul fed on double taps and likes.
Triveni Shukla passed away at a blasphemous age to remain unmarried and with a face which did not go with her name. She died of a heart attack anticipating a head-on collision with a truck, which she imagined having a face like that of a human with the headlights being eyes, menacingly coming for its kill.
Ms Shukla lived and died with a deep sense of not belonging in a country where everyone had to belong somewhere. An accidental entrepreneur and a keen animal welfare worker, this Facebook socialite daydreamed herself having a good time in exotic locations and fabulous parties or sometimes in Highbrow soirees in Pashmina saris. However, had she lived any longer she would probably end up as just another cat lady with a foul temper.
As she wished, her funeral will be attended by only two people–her best friend and her current paramour. As for others, this notorious introvert would not tolerate them even in death. She will be cremated in her brand new Kota silk sari.
