Our Self-Written Obituaries – Anam Fatima, New Friends Colony, Delhi
The 226th death.
[Text and photos sent by Anam Fatima]
All her life she dreaded early mornings. But for a journey, she’d be up and about in no time.
Anam Fatima left this world early this morning.
On her bedside was kept a copy of A Lust for Life, a note pad randomly scribbled upon and a few letters.
It is no secret that she spent her life around books, reading and writing. She obsessed over writers like Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath only to find out they had taken their own life. It made her wonder what would become of her. Will she find a method in her madness or will she succumb? She made it her life’s mission for the latter to never come to pass.
Her many passions left her teetering between balance and extremes. Only she knows if it was all worth it. She was often found muttering her mentor’s advice every time somebody talked about thinking out of the box, “There is no box, you fool!”
