[ Futuristic post]
After my self-criticism, heres the next level : My obituary. The inspiration for the idea was a scene from the movie 'Serendipity'. And trust me, writing it aint that hard at all.
So, here goes:
As I would like it to appear in newspaper columns.....
Disgruntled Genius (DG) died yesterday of natural causes after the stupidity and fakeness prevalent in the world (growing by the minute) took its toll on him.
DG, as we know, had a pretty awesome blog - WTF is going on? - which was his crusade against all the irritations in the world. He had hoped that the blog's theme of political incorrectness regarding stupidity around and ranting against it will help in keeping his mind from going bonkers. But, it proved otherwise. The fatal blow finally came yesterday when Rakhi Sawant won the nobel for her efforts towards bringing peace to the world through her show 'Rakhi ka Insaaf'. DG, as always, decided to "analyze" this through an awesome blogpost - 'How Mahajan-Man saves Nobel'. But before he could even start, his mind and heart stopped working, almost at the same time. In this way, we can say that he martyred himself in the line of duty.
Talking about his mind and heart, this was the only time when they were in sync otherwise they were always at a conflict. While DG was a true romantic at heart, his mind was all practical and steady. Or rather, emotionless. As he himself once famously said, " The world is always so adamant on forcing shit up your ass, you cant help but becoming indifferent!". He was an optimistic person although in his last few days, he had become quite cynical which wasnt without reasons as he believed the world is truly going to the dogs.
DG was a good friend.He loved traveling and considered his backpack a sacred thing. He disliked religions and all those preachy TV Gurus. He never quite understood why people need some guru to tell them how to live? He had limited wishes which included noble causes like SRK announcing his retirement, Sachin lifting the World Cup trophy and ofcourse, a ban on idiocy , that is MTV.
DG wasnot a perfect person neither he desired to become one. He loved his life and always lived it with full-on attitude despite it being a bitch. He believed in love despite its tendency of hurting always and he loved himself - despite him being one big confused screw-up.
DG maynot be missed at all but his legacy will never die - the legacy which gave a new superhero to the world and brought respect to the term 'lazy ass'.
Love you DG. You truly lived by what you said - "Wont die before death. FTW!".
