Our Self-Written Obituaries – Sameen, Bangalore
The 198th death.
[Text and photos sent by Sameen]
Her name was Sameen, “precious” in Arabic. All her life she felt anything but that. If the legend about praying in front of the Kaaba is true she wished to ask for some confidence and trust in her own self.
She feared oblivion like many other people but wished to be anything but mundane, the modern-day fairytale of Ayn Rand-style of individuality and ego reigned her veins.
She had a problem with remembering faces. Her brain stored names and the faces associated with them in two different folders. This was another reason she couldn’t help but be afraid of oblivion.
Finally, after many failed attempts, she found the person who made her feel a lot less miserable, cherished even. And if the legend about praying in front of the Kaaba is true, this time she wished to die. Even though she was a very practical person she cannot help but be a fan of happy endings. She left this world for the beyond and got her precious happy ending at last.
She was selfish that way.
She is survived by her easy laughs, need to love and please everyone and by her unpublished poetry.
